Govt denies receiving proposal for reducing age limit for Civil Services

The Union Government has denied that any proposal was made to it for the reduction of the upper age limit and the maximum number of attempts in civil services examination.

The clarification was issued on Wednesday in the Lok Sabha – the lower House of the Parliament of India.

“At present, no such proposal is under consideration of the government,” said Jitendra Singh, Minister of State for Personnel. He was asked whether or not the central government was planning to reduce the upper age limit as reported by various concerned quarters.

In a written reply, Singh clarified that several representations were received by various quarters regarding the scheme of civil services examination.

After due consideration, the central government has decided that in the Paper-II of Civil Services (Preliminary) examination, the marks of question-section on ‘English language comprehension skills’ are not to be included for gradation or merit, in the CSE 2014.

“It has also been decided that candidates who appeared in CSE 2011 would be given one more attempt in CSE 2015,” the minister confirmed.

    Thank u govt for pronouncing the fair judgement as I m one of the cse aspirants, my all the hopes were dashed into grounds when I heard the shocking news. If govt takes stand of experienced persons that ment it wants to attract people who have wisdom and can share wisdom. I really appreciate the rejection of proposal of reduction in age and attempts. Otherwise it would have played hell with the carreer of lots of peoples.
