It is seen that those authorities have put age bars in many examinations. In some examinations in our place do give age relaxations, but still there are lots of qualified and educated people who are unable to put their talents due to age bar in examinations. Do you support that age limitation, could help organizations and other recruiting agencies in its growth. May be they need fresh young talents. Anyhow there are cases where age limitations are needed too.

Hi sham.. I feel age limit is required for most of the areas.. following are the points I felt it should be there.. 1. In order to avoid unemployment problem.. Since the aged person gradually become dependent on their kids who are grown up.. 2. youths can learn new technologies quickly.. 3. Performance wise youths will be better.. 4. Technology is growing faster and one should update it faster to improve job performance..

Hello Sham, I felt the age limitation is necessary in case of jobs in government sector. Already there are not sufficient employment opportunities for youngsters and if there is no age limit then just imagine the number of applicants! The government may not be able to provide job for all; the age bar can help them to restrict some people. Yes the age relaxation is there for deserved people.
