Age Relaxation for Central Government Services
Any relaxation of five years in age limit to the candidates of all categories in the Government and Semi-Government services…
Whether the Central Government has taken or proposes to take any steps to give relaxation of five years in age limit to the candidates of all categories in the Government and Semi-Government services in view of universalisation of education and increasing number of educated unemployed youths..?
The Minister of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions said in the Lok Sabha that the Department of Personnel & Training has already issued instructions for relaxation in the upper age limit to Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribes/Other Backward Classes candidates and persons with disability for appointment to all civil posts/services under Central Government which are filled through open competitive examination. Relaxation in the upper age limit is also allowed to departmental candidates and Ex-service men for some specific posts on fulfillment of certain conditions.
