    - For OBC: 21-33 years.

    - In case if you belong to SC/ST(21-35 years) category, PH or government servant then you will be given relaxation in upper age limit as per UPSC rules.

    - Otherwise you can not apply for ICS at the age of 34 years.

    Dear Friend

    As you have not mentioned the name of UPSC exam,I think that you are asking about the your eligibility for the civil services examinations.The age limitations for the civil services examinations are as below:


    So if you belong to sc/st then you can give the civil services examination but for one time only.If you belong to physically handicapped category then the upper age limit is 40 years.

    In spite of age limitations ,you must have bachelor's degree in any stream from a recognised university.

    >>You must be an Indian citizen.

    The no of attempts also depends upon category to which you belong:

    General:4

    OBC:7

    SC/ST; no limit.

    Note: You have to prepare with strong determination and courage as this examinations are very tough and needs lot of labour.Try to be updated with whatever happens around you.Watch news channels and read news paper regularly so as to have command over first paper of civil services examination that is called preliminary test.The syllabus is as foll
    ows;


    The other two stages are Main examination and personal interview .

    Hope the information helps you.

    Best of luck

    21-35 years for other backward classes(OBC).
    21-40 years for physically handicapped candidates
    21-35 years for ex-government service man.

    2)For NDA,for selection of candidates in the air force,army and navy
    the age limit is 16.5 to 19 years
    there is no age relaxation for any specialized category.

    Hi
    As you have not mentioned your category, it is not possible for me to give you a precise answer.
    Now look, if you belong to the general category or the obc category, then you are not allowed to give the exam as the maximum age to give this exam for the general and the obc category is 30 and 33 years respectively.
    Now only if you belong to the sc/st category, then you will be eligible of giving this exam because the age limit for the sc/st candidate is 21-35 years.

    There are some categories for that age relaxation. It depends on which community you belong to, if you are OC then your age limit will be 21 to 30 and it will vary for BC and MBC its from 21 to 33 and for SC/ST it is from 21 to 35....If you are a citizen of Jammu and kashmir and if you are a X- service men then there is a age relaxtion upto 35 years. On the date of applying for exam you should be less than 35 years old if you come under any of the above mentioned categories.
