The Centre is considering age relaxation for candidates appearing in this year’s Combined Graduate Level Examination (CGLE) for recruitment to various Group B and C government jobs.
The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has already issued a notification for CGLE, 2015 and mentioned August 1, 2015 as the date of reckoning of age for the purpose of determining eligibility.
“Government has received representations from a large number candidates. In this regard, a proposal to allow the candidates who fulfil the age criteria as on January 1, 2015, to also apply for the posts as a one-time measure, is under the consideration,” a note by Department of Personnel and Training said.
The DoPT has sought comments on this from concerned stake holders.
