The government has decided to increase the maximum age limit to enter government jobs by 39 months, from current limit of 30 years.



The government has decided to increase the maximum age limit to enter government jobs by 39 months, from current limit of 30 years, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Ministry of Public Administration issued a notification in this regard on Thursday (September 22).
According to a letter sent to different ministries, departments and its subordinate offices, applicants who have reached or exceeded the age of 30 from 25 March, 2020, to 30 June, 2023, will be eligible to benefit from this waiver.
However, this age waiver will not be applicable for the Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) examinations, the letter added.
‎In the notification, the ministry said that all institutions of the government that could not issue recruitment notices due to the Covid-19 pandemic, must fix the age limit of candidates as of March 25, 2020, for all recruitment calls to be published by 30 June next year.
Earlier on September 2, 2021, the government extended the age limit by 21 months to apply for government jobs due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
