ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif rejected on Friday a summary submitted by the Establishment Division which recommended a 2 year increase of the upper age-limit from 28 year to 30 year for Central Superior Services (CSS) examination.
“The increase in the number of academic years from 14 to 16 for a bachelors degree is really no justification to enhance the upper age-limit for CSS candidates,” a statement said by Prime Minister House.
However, Minister for Planning, Development and Reform, Ahsan Iqbal said that he will resubmit the case of increasing upper age-limit for review to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Ahsan Iqbal in his official Facebook page uploaded status regarding CSS upper age-limit issue, “I have received number of queries on CSS age issue. The status is that after extensive deliberations we had recommended that in view of increasing complexity of governance minimum education criteria needs to be enhanced from 14 to 16 years and accordingly upper age limit be also increased by two years”.
