ISLAMABAD: The government has decided to reduce the age limit for CSS exams by two years.

According to the sources of a private TV channel, the government has proposed to reduce the age limit from 30 years to 28 years. The age limit for the examination of government employees has also been reduced by four years from 32 years.

It was mentioned that it also has been decided to rename the Central Superior Services (CSS) to the Central Services of Pakistan. It was also proposed to focus on the elimination of the difference between social and science candidates.

It was also suggested to introduce the percentile score system to provide equal opportunities to the candidates. The move to eliminate the special quota in the CSS examination for the candidates from backward areas is also under consideration. It has been proposed to set the special quota on the basis of the educational background rather than just the domicile.
