    Hesitating to act because the whole vision might not be achieved, or because others do not yet share it, is an attitude that only hinders progress.
  • It looks as if blanket relaxation to everyone is given.

    They had to add just two rows but in that also they couldn't get their calculations right.
  • @Siddharth Am I missing something?

    That was always going to be the case. Or else it would have been struck down by the courts for violating Art. 16.

    @Siddharth Am I missing something?
    Nope, that wasn't for you. Couldn't edit the post later.

    Edit :- Does this mean a person just below 32 years who missed it last year can re-appear?
  • @Siddharth I think that provided the age limit of 32 is not crossed, all GC candidates can apply.
    The horde sees the fish. Arjuna sees the eye.
    I see the possibility of fish pakoras ;)

  • I hope, there isnt any ambiguity left!!
  • They are tempting once an aspirant again to make them loose their sleep .. UPSC , I was supposed to quit after this year , why you want to give me more attempts .. :((
    2017--> 8th attempt
  • These changes are permanent ? From now on, a General candidate would have 6 attempts ?
  • When I was telling the same thing, no one believed me.

  • is the relaxation applicable for IFOS exam also??
  • hi everybody, So August 1st would be the cut off date just like previous time for this time also?
  • Is there a reason behind writing "30+2" instead of just "32" ? :-?
  • Is there a reason behind writing "30+2" instead of just "32" ? :-?
    34-2 would have been really confusing and 28+4 makes no sense ;)
    Prelims : 2/5; Mains : 0/2; Interview : 0; Remainder : 1+1 (Tired but not; Retired) / Medical Science / Kolkata / Nihilist extraordinaire | Thanks a lot...
  • Is there a reason behind writing "30+2" instead of just "32" ? :-?
    30 was initial limit,now it is relaxed up to 2 years more.
    and yes @ArindamSarkar makes sense too. :))
  • Is there a reason behind writing "30+2" instead of just "32" ? :-?
    34-2 would have been really confusing and 28+4 makes no sense ;)
    One more: UPSC believes in fuelling conspiracy theories!
    Sharpen your axe, before cutting down the tree...

    Of course. As of now, they are permanent.

    Yeah. Anyone who is below 32 years of age and has not exhausted his/her 6 attempts can appear in the exam.

    I am happy for my seniors ,who had exhausted their attempts .I hope they would be back to the game again and win the battle. :)

    P.S. Picture abhi baaki hai, CSE 2014 would be more thrilled than the movie 300: Rise of an Empire. :-bd

  • The return of the veterans will definitely spice up things .
    Just had this thought , if they increase the max. age a little more ( particularly in the SC/ST and PH categories) father son duos will simultaneously compete for the coveted jobs . Even Vajiram could come up with family discounts .
  • @Rudy ... dude, that's a great observation! lol

    No its (normal=30 +10) =PH +2)=> Normal +12; the guy seems to be quite young and ridiculing age relaxation. I think @Siddharth too fell in the same trap

    In one of the Hindi movie a dialogue is , "Tumhara Pyaar Na Ho Gaya,UPSC Ka Exam Ho Gaya,10 Saal Se Paas Hi Nai Ho Rha" lol. So, let me focus on clearing the exam , i 'll cross the bridge when i come there, where many of you have already reached. :P :D

    Anyways, Thank you. :)
