My interview was excellent and in there minutes of meeting they clearly stated that I was selected for this job but on technical grounds he is rejected. And the technical ground was that I am over age. In the advertisement it was written that on the closing date of application age on applicant should be 35 years where as I am 35 years and 10 months.
    Now does anybody knows any law or case judgment that can help me ?

  • my question is that some one whose age is 44 and junior school teacher recruitment final age limit is 30, is this person is eligible for this post or not. can this person get relaxation or not.

    • Dear Ghulam Ali, you can try for the same. As I have seen a case about 1 year ago in which a Federal Govt Employee of age 43 tried to Appear in PPSC through proper channel. He appeared in the exam and passed the exam. But at the time of Interview he was rejected just on the base that he was 43 and he does not had the Punjab Govt Service. I think according to this if you are working in the Punjab Govt then you can apply for the same.
