Relief of Five Years Age Limit
There is no proposal to give relief of five years in age limit to the candidates of all categories to apply for Government and semi-Government services. Instructions allowing relaxation in upper age limit for recruitment of the candidates of different categories to various posts under the Central Government already exist.
Further, instructions issued by the Central Government are not suo-moto applicable to autonomous bodies, statutory organizations, public sector enterprises, trusts, banks, semi-Government services, etc. which are governed by their respective regulations/instructions issued under Statute/Act of the Parliament by which they are created or came into existence.
This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri Gopal Shetty in the Lok Sabha today.
