The government plans to raise the age limit of candidates aspiring to get into the civil services.

“The discussion is ongoing. The process has not started yet, but it will start soon,” Cabinet Secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam said on Monday, reports bdnews24.com.

“I hope the entry age limit will go up,” he said.

But there’s no discussion on raising the retirement age for public servants.

Recently, the parliamentary standing committee on the public administration ministry recommended increasing the age limit for entering public services to 35 years from 30 years now and the retirement age to 65 years from 59 years now.
