Centre agrees to one-time age relaxation for J&K
NEW DELHI, Feb 9: The Government of India has agreed to give one-time relaxation in qualifying age for Union Public Services Commission (UPSC) candidates from Jammu and Kashmir.

"On the intervention of Hon'ble Chief minister, UPSC agrees for one time age relaxation for candidates of IAS exams from the state of Jammu and Kashmir," JKCM's Grievance Cell tweeted.

On Thursday, Mehbooba had spoken to Union Minister, incharge Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), Dr Jitendra Singh on increasing the upper age limit for the state's youth appearing for the UPSC.

Reportedly Centre agreed to the Chief Minister’s demand yet it also clarified that it would be one time relaxation for J&K youth and would not be available in future.

Leader of Opposition in Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah too had asked the state government to continue relaxation in upper age for the J&K candidates who appear in UPSC exams.
