We need to up our API Limits in Developer org from 15K to 30K

We have a staging org and have bumped up against the 15K limit. We feel we need to increase the API limit to 30K. How do we do that?
NagendraNagendra (Salesforce Developers) 

If the default API Limit is insufficient for your business requirements, you can request an increase to the limit, temporarily or permanently.
Consider the following
Permanently increasing your API limit, or for more than 2 weeks, can be performed by contacting your Account Executive. 
Important: Support will not be able to assist you with this activation.

You may also increase your API limit for a maximum period of two weeks by logging a Support case in the Help & Training portal. Please include the following: 

1. Are you the System Administrator authorized on behalf of this Organization to request this feature and that you understand the implications of having this feature activated?
2. What is the Organization ID of the production or sandbox instance where you would like to enable this feature?  (Navigate to Setup | Company Profile | Company Information):  
3. How many API calls are you requesting to obtain temporarily?  
4. Requested duration for the API calls increase (max of 2 weeks): 
Note: Support can only make this increase on a one-off basis and requests for concurrent two-week periods will not be granted. 
5. Business Case: Why do you need the feature activated? 
6. Are you doing data upload/migration or integration?
a) In the case of data upload/migration:
How many records and what objects will you upload?
What batch size is being used?
What tool will be used? Is the bulk API used? Notice the bulk API allows to upload 10,000 records/batch x number of batches. 
b) In the case of an integration
What specific API calls will they integration be sending and how many?
What application will be used?

If the Organization that needs the increase is owned by a Partner:
    Have a System Administrator log a Case with Salesforce Partner Support.
    Please include all important details including the Organization ID and a business case for the request.
    Partner Support will review the Case and action it as needed.
Hope the above information helps.
