    Dear Aspirant,

    Yes there is relaxation benefit for PH Candidates in UPSC Examination.
    Infact almost every government competitive exam holds certain number of seats for Physically Handicapped Candidates.
    So you can perfectly apply for the UPSC Examinations.
    You just need your physical disability certificate from Government recognised Hospital and disability should be more than 40% to avail the relaxation benefit.
    Read the full notification of particular examination before applying so as to clear doubts.
    All the best.

    Regards.

    In the general category the age limit is 21-30yrs but for physically handicapped persons age limit is relaxed upto a maximum of 10yrs.

    So the age limit for Physically Handicapped candidate becomes between 21-40yrs.

    The no.of attempts is also relaxed for Physically handicapped candidate belonging to the general category & it is 7 times.

    Physically Handicapped candidates are exempt from paying the exam fees for UPSC Civil Services exams.

    Dear friend,

    Yes you have been provided benefits related to Maximum age limits in UPSC exams.

    Although there is not much benefit for the exams under undergraduate level
    but for the exams at graduate level you can avail the benefits.

    Like If you talk about Civil services exam which you can give after your graduation.

    The eligibility conditions are:-

    You must have completed your graduation from a recognized university.

    Even if you are in your last year you can appear for the exam.

    There is no restrictions related to stream. Any stream candidates can appear for the exam.

    Also there is no restrictions on percentage required. Being just passed will do.

    AGE LIMIT:-

    The age limit for General is 21 to 30 yrs.

    There is no reservation for General candidates but some reserved categories have been provided relaxation.

    Like OBC have been provided 3 yrs of age relaxation. I.e, from 21 to 33 yrs.

    SC/ST have been provided 3 yrs of age relaxation. I.e, from 21 to 35 yrs.

    Now same as these categories You are given 10 yrs of age relaxation.

    So the minimum age is 21 yrs and maximum age is 40 yrs.

    THE AGE IS LIMIT SAME FOR ALL THE EXAMS LIKE IES, CMS AND CIVIL SERVICES.

    For more detailed information visit the official website of UPSC.
