    Hi...

    Supreme court upheld the constitutional validity of UPSC rule along merit list candidates, belonging to reserved category to avail the quota benefits while choosing posts.

    There is minimum of 5years relaxation for the ST/SC candidates for the jobs.


    Good luck.!

    The UPSC exams are conducted for different job positions which are related to different government sectors. You have not mentioned what is your educational qualification. Hence the criteria’s for different UPSC exams will vary accordingly. But generally, the SC candidates are given some relaxations while attending the UPSC exams. The first type of relaxations may be in terms of the age limits. Like for the civil service exam candidates can apply till they are 35 years old. For the candidates from general category the maximum age limit is 30 years. There will also be relaxations in case of the educational qualifications, percentage of marks etc. Also there will relaxations in terms of the number of attempts for the UPSC exams. The number of attempts will be unlimited in case of the SC candidates.

    First in Age-
    5 year relaxation for SC and 3 years for ST and 3 years for OBC..
    and the Second one id in Attempts-
    Unlimited attempts for SC/ST and 7 attempts for OBC category candidates..
    and one thing is more that they also give reservation/./.
    i think 33% reserved for SC/ST and OBC candidates..
