UPSC reply about Age limit crucial date criteria determination

Hai I got a reply from UPSC about the criteria for crucial date for determining Age limit.
If DoPT can be persuaded to change it to January 1st of coming Notification year, then many candidates who have not utilised all their attempts can get one attempt for coming prelims.

  • Can we all file a PIL that arbitrary changes in date of consideration is affecting us. when the exam was changed to august then date of consideration was January 1 and now when the exam is in JUNE the date of conideration is August. They cannot have arbitrary rules. An exam which affect '000s of people cannot have vague regulations. Today xyz was reqd tomorrow abc is reqd.

    The two additional attempts were announced but how can they change the date of consideration when that year exam was held during the same schedule as that of previous year.

  • Actually even before i could complete somehow the comment got posted.

    all i meant was the year when exam was scheduled in august during the time of UPA the date of consideration was always JANUARY 1. Those years too the mains used to held in OCTOBER or DECEMBER.

    The year when additional attempts were announced ever since the age of consideration has been changed to AUGUST. Which means it has left us with fewer attempts.
