December 22, 1998

In pursuance of the decision of the Cabinet to increase by two years the maximum age limit for recruitment by direct open competition to the All India Services, the Central Services and other civilian posts under the Union Government, the upper age-limit for recruitment through the Civil Services Examination, 1999 has since been raised from 28 years to 30 years. Besides general orders have also since been issued raising the upper age-limit by two years for recruitment to Central Civil Services and other Civilian posts through direct open competitive examination conducted by UPSC or SSC or any other authority. These general orders will be effective from 1.4.1999.

This increase in the upper age-limit will not apply for recruitment to Armed Forces or Para-Military Forces, namely, Assam Rifles, Border Security Force, Central Industrial Security Force, Central Reserve Police Force and Indo-Tibetian Border Police or recruitment through Limited Departmental Examination or through shortlisting or by interview or by contract or by absorption or transfer or deputation. This increase in the upper age-limit will also not apply to direct recruitment to any Central Civil Service or Civilian post for which action for recruitment has been initiated through open advertisement or otherwise before 1.4.1999.
