Currently, the age limit for entry into public service is 30 years, and the retirement age is 59 years

Finance Minister AMA Muhith yesterday ruled out the possibility of raising the age limit to 32 years to enter government jobs.

“Before the election, I believe, there will be no change in the age limit,” he told reporters after a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Public Purchase at the Cabinet Division of the Secretariat in Dhaka, reports UNB.

His comments came amid media reports that the government might move to raise the age limit to 32 years.

Currently, the age limit for entry into public service is 30 years, and the retirement age is 59 years.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Administration Ministry at a meeting last month had recommended increasing the age limit to 35 years and retirement age for public servants to 65 years.

The recommendations came at a time when students and jobseekers had been demonstrating demanding a hike in the age limit for public services, along with reformation of the existing quota system.

However, Public Administration Minister Syed Ashraful Islam on June 6 told parliament that the government had no plan at the moment to increase the age limit.

Responding to another question, Finance Minister Muhith also said that the polls-time administration might be formed in the middle of October and he might be a Cabinet member in that government.

On Tuesday, the Election Commission announced that the 11th general election will be held in the last week of December.
