Relax age, attempts for UPSC Civil Services Exams: Demand Aspirants, Seek Sonia Gandhi’s Intervention

Posted by

Relax age, attempts for UPSC Civil Services ExamsIt was initially in 1989 that a protest by UPSC civil services aspirants staging a sit-in at the then newly elected Prime Minister V.P. Singh’s residence throughout the night despite a heavy rain that moved the mandarins to relent age bar and give one more chance to many.

This time, almost 25 years later, more than 500 young protesters staged a protest in front of UPA leader Sonia Gandhi’s residence at 10, Janapath in New Delhi on Monday seeking no restriction on the number of attempts for appearing in civil services examination and age relaxation to appear for Civil Services, mainly the IAS exams.

The candidates sought political intervention in the affairs of an otherwise independent body, the Union Public Services Commission (UPSC), that conducts the UPSC Prelims and Mains before interviewing the successful candidates for the country’s top government posts. The candidates this time demanded that rather than restoring the changes in the exam pattern, UPSC should also increase the age limit for the candidates.

They said that the students from rural India without English education would benefit with the relaxation before the changes take off. Their next sit-in will be in front of Rahul Gandhi’s residence, said some aspirants.
