Considering the Covid-19 fallout, the government has raised the maximum age limit by three years and three months for entering government service, reports UNB.

The Public Adminis-tration Ministry issued a gazette notification in this regard on Thursday.

This will not be applicable for BCS exams under Public Service Commission (PSC), said the circular.

As per the notification, job seekers who reached the highest age limit on March 25, 2020 can apply at government offices - including ministries, departments and subordinate offices, autonomous and nationalised institutions - that were unable to issue recruitment circular due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

They can apply for government job circulars issued until June 30, 2023.

According to Public Administration Ministry, the government offices could not publish any recruitment circular in recent months due to the pandemic.

During this period, many aspirants have become ineligible for government jobs due to the prevailing age restrictions.
