Referring to a newspaper report on recruitment of PSTs, Mr Kuldeep Rai Sharma, PCC president has requested the Lt. Governor to grant age relaxation of  8 years  to female candidates  over and above  the  prescribed  age limit of 30 years in lieu of  age relaxation of three years  currently granted by the administration. In a letter, Mr Kuldeep brought to the notice of  the Lt. Governor  that  various posts under the A&N Administration which are having scale of pay /pay level even lower than that of Primary School Teacher  has  maximum age limit of 33 (thirty three) years for male and 38 (thirty eight) years for female are prescribed for direct recruitment.
He further stated that obviously such preferential treatment to female candidates over the male candidate in respect of maximum age limit for entry in government service   under  A & N Administration  need to be given  to perpetuate government policy of endowing women empowerment  by providing  more opportunity to womenfolk in the public appointment so as to make them self-dependent and self-reliant.   He pointed out  that in case of earlier recruitment for the posts of teachers including the Primary School Teacher in the Directorate of Education age relaxation up to 8(eight) years over and above of prescribed age limit of 30 years were given to the female candidates.
