Default Re: UPSC Upper Age Limit

Union Public Service Commission is going to revise the upper age limit for the prestigious Civil Services Examination (CSE).

The commission may reduce the upper age limit to 26, as per ET.

At present, the candidates between the age group of 21 and 32 years are eligible to appear for the examinations.

The lower limit for the marquee exam is fixed at 21 years, while the upper limit is 32 years for general category candidates. The age limits vary in case of caste-based reservations.

The upper age limit will be 26 years instead of the current 32 years. No reduction in upper age limit has been prescribed for SC/ST candidates from the current 37 years.

Under the purported plan, UPSC is looking to bring down the upper age limit by 6 years over a period of 5-7 years. This would help insulate the aspirants currently preparing for the exam.

UPSC age limits:

Category Upper Age Limit No. of Attempts Allowed
General 32 Years 06 Attempts

Other Backwards Castes (OBC) 32 Years with relaxation of 03 years = 35 years 09 Attempts

Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe (SC/ST) 32 Years with relaxation of 05 Years = 37 years Till the Upper Age limit

Physically disabled candidates (Blind, Deaf-Mute, Orthopedic) 32 years with relaxation of 10 years = 42 years
For the General and OBC Candidates= 09 attempts
For SC/ST Candidates = Unlimited till age limit

Jammu & Kashmir Domicile General = 37 years, OBC = 40 Years, SC/ST = 42 Years, PH = 50 years Up to the Upper Age limit

Disabled servicemen disabled from duty General= 37 years OBC = 38 Years SC/ST = 40 Years Up to the Upper Age limit
