Hyderabad: The state government, which has been facing the ire of students, raised the upper age limit by 10 years to appease them.

The Chief Secretary of the state SP Singh issued a notification on behalf of Governor ESL Narasimhan, raising the upper age limit from 34 years to 44 years for all direct recruitments except for uniformed services.

With this, unemployed can get a job through direct recruitments by Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) and through other recruiting agencies.

The students who are feeling left out, as job notifications were not given at regular intervals to enable them to get a job can cheer now.

The State government issued similar orders three years ago in 2015, which was renewed in 2016. These ad-hoc rules expired on July 26.  Taking into consideration the pleas from government job-seekers, the state government has decided to extend the orders for further two year period.

The ad-hoc rules of age limit will be applicable to various categories of posts to be notified for the purpose of direct recruitment by TPSC and other recruiting agencies in the state.  However, these rules are not applicable for direct recruitment to the posts of uniformed service, including the police, excise, fire, prisons and forest departments.
