MerakiLab Videos started this petition to FIDE and

current FIDE rule for classical chess game is : K is the development coefficient.
K = 40 for a player new to the rating list until he has completed events with at least 30 games
K = 20 as long as a player's rating remains under 2400.
K = 10 once a player's published rating has reached 2400 and remains at that level subsequently, even if the rating drops below 2400.
K = 40 for all players until their 18th birthday, as long as their rating remains under 2300.

So our goal is age equality. k=40 for all the player as long as their rating remains under 2300.

Why this needed?

case1:

Delhi boy Vardaan Nagpal went to Europe with a rating of 2015. Being born in 2002, he had a co-efficient of 40. He played in five tournaments - First Saturday IM May and June edition, Salento Open, Balaton GM tournament and Montcada Open (which is in progress) and gained a mind boggling 486 Elo points! His live rating as on today (3rd of July) is 2501. That makes him ranked 28th India, much ahead of many grandmasters and almost all the IMs .(https://chessbase.in/news/vardaan-nagpal-reaches-2501)

case2:

Imagine you are a player rated 2000. How would you feel if one month later, your rating would be 2400+? Ojas Kulkarni from Bangalore, Karnataka, has pulled off something incredible in the bygone 37 days. In four tournaments, all part of the Catalonian circuit in Spain, Ojas has gained 400 points. We have a brief coverage with games and analysis. And we reveal the secret of his remarkable progress! (https://en.chessbase.com/post/ojas-journey-400-rating-points-in-37-days)
