The maximum age limit for applying to government jobs should be extended to 35 years, leader of the opposition in parliament and chief patron of Jatiya Party Begum Raushan Ershad has said.
“The age limit for recruitment of government jobs should be increased from 30 to 35 years. The age limit for entering government jobs is 35 to 59 years in 162 countries of the world,” she said in a statement on Sunday.
Noting that qualifications are more important than age, the opposition leader said this age limit is not consistent with other countries in the world.
The opposition leader said, “Generally, it takes 28 years to complete the academic activities. It is regrettable that frustration arises among the job-seekers when they cannot get scope to compete for government services even after 30 years of study.”
The number of unemployed youths stands over 26 lakh in the country, said Raushan.
She urged the government to take steps to resolve the unemployment crisis as soon as possible.
