A notification was issued on Tuesday by Chief Secretary SP Singh on behalf of Governor ESL Narasimhan, raising the upper age limit from 34 years to 44 years for all direct recruitments except uniformed services.
The State government had issued similar orders in July, 2015, which was renewed again last year. However, the State government has extended these adhoc rules which expired on July 26 this year. Considering the pleas from government job-seekers, the State government has decided to extend the orders for further two years period.
The adhoc rules of upper age limit, will be applicable to various categories of posts to be notified for the purpose of direct recruitment by TSPSC and other recruiting agencies in the State. Thus, the age concession over and above the upper age limit should be allowed in accordance with the Rule 12 of the State and Subordinate Service Rules. However, these rules are not applicable for direct recruitment to the posts of uniformed service including Police, Excise, Fire, Prisons, and Forest departments.
