Some candidates have approached RRBs regarding upper age limit for direct recruitment to the posts of ALP & Technician.
As per para 137 (2)(ii) of the Indian Railway Establishment Manual Vol.I revised in 1989(Reprint in 2009), the standard upper age limit for ALP and Technician is 27 years for UR candidates.(OBC:30 & SC/ST:32)
However, a relaxation of 3 years over and above the aforesaid upper age limit was introduced by
Ministry of Railways, as a temporary measure till 03.02.2015.
Therefore, after 03.02.2015, the aforesaid relaxation is not available. However, keeping in view the
interest of the candidates, this is being reduced in a phased manner over a period of 4 years.
These instructions are already available on the website of Ministry of Railways i.e.
www.indianrailways.gov.in since 2015.
Bottom Line: Railways will not change Age Limit
