Delhi High Court has directed Central Reserve Police Forces (CRPF) and Central Government to issue a Corrigendum before 25th January 2023 and also to extend the last day of submitting online applications. The age limit of candidates prescribed therein is from 18 to 25 years as on the closing date of receipt of application i.e. 25.01.2023, meaning thereby, a candidate should not born before 26.01.1998 or after 25.01.2005.
CRPF has issued the notification in 2016 for the recruitment of 686 Head Constable vacancies. And now, after a period of six years on 27th December 2022, an advertisement for filling-up CRPF vacancies was issued. The concern is that the age limit of the candidates prescribed for the said posts is from 18 to 25 years but since no recruitment was conducted arbitrarily for last 5-6 years, the petitioners have become over-aged and have crossed the maximum prescribed age limit, i.e. 25 years and thereby, unable to apply for the CRPF examination.
Relaxing the upper age limit as “One Time Measure” of the candidate shall enable them to appear in the examination for the post of Head Constable (Ministerial) for the year 2022.
