In Maharashtra, the upper age for applying for government jobs has been raised by two years. With this adjustment, persons who want to apply for open-category state government jobs can do so up to the age of 40. The age limit for applicants in the reserved category is 45. It is intended that by making the change, more people will be able to apply for government jobs.
A chance at a government job will also be given to job seekers who missed out on possibilities during the pandemic years. The age restriction has been called for by numerous candidates from all over the nation, particularly those hoping to pass the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exams.
On the occasion of India’s 75th year of independence, the State government will be hiring roughly 75,000 workers this year. This relaxation will only be permitted till December 31, 2023. Even job postings that were published or issued prior to the announcement of the age restriction extension will be subject to the relaxation.
The benefits of this relaxation will be felt by thousands of job applicants who want to work for the government. It will now take place later for the Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) exam pattern to be changed to resemble the new UPSC exam pattern.
After protest from job seekers, this decision was made. The MPSC was then given the go-ahead by the Maharashtra government to apply the new pattern in 2025.
