    Hello,

    At central level, Muslims do not have any reservation for any of the central services. So, you would not be able to avail any reservation in civils exam related to the community you belong. You will come under general category for which age limits are 21 - 30 yrs.

    Thanks,
    goyalk

    Re: Details regarding OBC reservation with respect to Civil Services Exam?

    Hi,

    OBC category has some reservations in UPSC exams.

    Generally for IAS / IPS / IFS exams cinducted by UPSC has these eligibility criteria -

    Graduation from a recognised university.

    Age should be between 21 years to 30 years.

    But in case of OBC, the resrvation includes relaaxation in the upper limit of age to apply for UPSC exams.'

    For OBC, the age criteria for UPSC exams is between 21 years - 33 years.

    Moreover an OBC candidate can make 7 attempts for civil services exams,
    unlike general category which can make only 4 attempts.

    So, these are the reservations for OBC category.
