Railways increase Upper Age Limit for ALP, Technician Posts
Upper Age Limit increased for ALP and Technician Posts in RRB
Bringing an end to the CEN 01/ 2018 recruitment age limit issue, Indian Railways has decided to increase the upper age limit for Assistant Loco Pilot (ALP), Technician posts to 30 years (unreserved category), 33 years (OBC non-creamy layer) and 35 years (SC and ST category).
This is going to benefit thousands of candidates who had been fighting relentlessly against the slash in the upper age limit in comparison to 2014 recruitment criteria; earlier it was 28 years for unreserved category. Age will be considered as on 1 July 2018.
Ministry of Railways released an official update in this regard now. Upper age limit for level 1 posts has also been increased to 31 years. Upper age limit for candidates belonging to SC/ ST category for being eligible for level 1 posts in Indian railways is 38 years now. The CEN 02/ 2018 notification for recruitment to level 1 posts has been released with the new age limit criteria.
