    5. For Ex-Servicemen candidates 5% Reservation.

    According to this reservation criteria the age limit divided according to the caste wise.

    >>> AGE LIMIT ACCORDING TO RESERVATION WISE FOR GOVERNMENT SERVICE EXAMS ARE :

    1. For GENERAL candidates 18 - 30 years.

    2. For OBC candidates 18 - 33 years.

    3. For SC/ST candidates 18 - 35 years.

    4. For HANDICAPPED candidates 18 - 40 years.

    Again this age limit varies according to the post wise.

    >>> LIST OF GOVERNMENT SERVICE EXAMS ARE :

    1. Indian Engineering Services - IES.

    2. Indian forest Services - IFS.

    3. Indian oil corporation limited - IOCL.

    4. Oil india limited - OIL.

    5. Banking sector jobs.

    6. Indian railway jobs.

    7. L & T.

    8. Union Public service commission jobs - UPSC.

    9. Police department jobs.

    10. Indian air force jobs etc.

    >>> NUMBER OF EXAM ATTEMPTS FOR THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT JOBS ARE :

    1. For GENERAL candidates only 4 attempts.

    2. For OBC candidates only 7 attempts.

    3. For SC/ST & HANDICAPPED candidates NO Limit only age limit.

    The age limit varies from exam to exam and department you are applying for. Usually the age limit is 25 years if you are applying for job just after 12th class. It is 30 years if you are applying for job requiring graduates. For NDA (National defence academy ) the age limit is 16 1/2. For CDS is 27 years as only graduates are eligible. For public sector companies like BHEL,NTPC, OIL, HPCL you must be less than 25 years of age.

    hello,
    Minimum age is 18 but the maximum age goes till 35 for General category, and thanks to aarakshan and our government who has given the relaxation in the ages of SC/ST/OBC..
    The age relaxation is their for handicapped people also which is acceptable.
    The age relaxation can be fine, but it should not be in marks...
    The age limits are different for different services exam like defense/banking/administrative services..
