Age Limit For UPSC

The age limit for the UPSC Civil Services Examination varies depending on the category of the candidate. Here are the general age limits as of my last update:

  • General Category: The candidate must be between 21 and 32 years old as of August 1 of the examination year. However, certain relaxations may apply for specific categories.
  • OBC (Other Backward Classes): There is a relaxation of up to 3 years in the upper age limit, making the maximum age 35 years.
  • SC/ST (Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes): Candidates from these categories have a relaxation of up to 5 years, making the maximum age 37 years.
  • Physically Disabled: There is an additional relaxation of up to 10 years for candidates with benchmark disability, provided they are otherwise eligible.

It’s important to note that these age limits are subject to change, and candidates should refer to the official UPSC notifications for the most accurate and updated information. Additionally, there may be other eligibility criteria related to educational qualifications and nationality that candidates need to fulfil.
