Civil Services examination age must be capped to 27: Niti Ayog
New Delhi : Niti Ayog on Wednesday suggested to cap upper age limit of Civil Services Examination as 27 years, current age limit is 30 for general category.
In the "Strategy for New India @ 75" report, the Niti Ayog has suggested the roadmap to reduce the number of civil services through rationalisation and harmonisation of services.
“The key to reform in the civil services is encouraging officers to cultivate specialisations based on their education and skills early on in their careers. Wherever possible, longer tenure postings need to be made based on the officers’ expertise. However, it is also necessary to ensure cross-sector mobility for civil servants from areas where they have become surplus to areas of emerging importance,” the report said.
