  1. I don’t understand Why Age limit is 28 for General cast. Even thought My age is 28 and i don’t qualify the exam due to my birth date is 19 aug 1989. Candidates age limit should be between 20 to 28 years as on 01-09-2017, i.e. a candidate must have been born not earlier than 02-09-1989 and not later than 01-09-1997 (both dates inclusive).

    Really Totally crap .. Really General Cast is dying on ground. rest SC and NT and other cast are enjoying a lot.
