No proposal to reduce upper age limit for IAS
Centre has clarified that it is not considering any proposal to reduce the age limit for civil service aspirants.
The announcement came against the backdrop of news reports which suggested that the Modi government will implement the previous UPA regime’s decision to bring down the upper age limit by four years.
An officials said, there is no proposal before the government to reduce the age limit for civil services.
Instead of reducing the age limit, the government has already announced that civil service aspirants, who may have lost out due to changes in the exam pattern, will get two additional attempts.
