Upper age in UPSC civil exams may reduce to 26 years
Union Public Service Commission is soon going to revise the upper age limit for the prestigious Civil Services Examination (CSE). The commission may reduce the upper age limit to 26.
At present, the candidates between the age group of 21 and 32 years are eligible to appear for the examinations.
The commission is thinking to reduce the upper age limit by 6 years to insulate the aspirants currently preparing for the exam. However, there would be no reduction in the upper age limit for the SC/ ST category candidates which is presently 37 years.
Last year in August, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appointed a panel to revamp the entire system of the civil services examination. The panel is chaired by former education secretary BS Baswan.
The Central Government will take a final decision on this matter.
Every year, UPSC conducts the examination to fill administrative positions in different All-India Services exams including IAS, IFS, IPS.
