    Hi.

    Minimum age should be 21 years and maximum age age limit is 30 year... but there is some relaxation for the candidate who belong to SC/ST and OBC criteria.

    There not too high qualification required... it's just that you should be graduate from a recognized university.

    So, don't get tensed... just start your preparation.

    All the Best.
