State to raise age limit for recruitment exams :: Deccon Cronicle

The state government is seriously considering to increase the upper age limit for various government recruitment exams to 39 years, from the present 34 years.
Though the government had earlier categorically stated there was no question of increasing the maximum age limit, various backward classes, scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and economically backward classes associations have been mounting pressure on the government to raise the maximum age limit by five years.
The general administration department is expected to issue an order raising the age limit, soon.
The contention raised is that government had last issued recruitment notifications in 2008 and to compensate for the loss of three years, increasing the age limit is the best option available. The state government will be issuing the notifications this month for all exams to fill 1.16 lakh posts in its various departments by December next year.
APPSC has released notification for 300 Group-I posts. Notification for 3,000 Group-II and Group-IV services are expected shortly. The department of school education is likely to fill 12,500 English medium teachers for its ‘model schools.’
30,000 teacher posts will be filled under DSC recruitment.
