Civil service aspirants will from this year onwards get a two-year age extension and two additional attempts beyond the existing stipulation, the Government said today.

The Centre recently approved two additional attempts for all categories of candidates beginning with the Civil Services Examination, 2014, and okayed the consequential age relaxation across the board.

Under the existing rules, an unreserved or general category candidate is permitted a maximum of four attempts with the age limit for such candidates to take the examination being 30 years.
