Rajasthan government is planning to increase the upper age limit for general candidates applying for government jobs. At present, a candidate must be at least 21 years but should not have crossed 35 years for state services. The minimum and maximum age, for subordinate services, are 25 and 45 years, respectively
In order to appease the youth you are suffering from lack of salaried jobs, the BJP government had also promised to provide 15 lakh jobs in five years. But demonetization and the GST rollout have hit the employment sector very hard and the promises are yet to be fulfilled.
The government is now trying to pacify the youth by relaxing the age limit as it will face crucial bypolls in two parliamentary seats and one assembly segment by the end of this year.
Earlier this month, students belonging to the general category raised their voice against the Rajasthan government and demanded that the upper age limit for the general category students for appearing in competitive exams be relaxed.
They said that while the age for appearing in competitive exams in most Hindi speaking states is between 40 and 45 years, Rajasthan government has kept it at 35. They demanded that the government increase this age limit at the earliest to 40 years.
