A panel headed by the former education society has suggested the UPSC to reduce the upper age limit for the candidates who wish to join the civil services.
The Panel has submitted its report to the UPSC on Tuesday.
A government official said "The report will first be examined by the commission. A decision will be taken by the government in consultation with the UPSC that will give its views on the report."
IAS exam is one of the toughest exams of India which is given by lakhs of candidates every year but only few, brightest of the brightest made it all the way through.
Upper Age Limit:
- SC/ST: relaxation of five years in upper age limit
- OBC: three-year relaxation in upper age limit
- Disabled candidates:10 years relaxation in upper age limit
The BS Baswan panel has reportedly recommended that "the age limit be reduced in a phased manner spread over several years and not in one go".
This step was suggested because thousands of candidates spend years preparing for the civil services and their careers can be jeopardized if they found themselves ineligible for the test after many attempts.
