Railway Notice Regarding Upper Age Limit

Dear Readers,

RRB ALP and Technician:-

Some candidates have approached RRBs regarding upper age limit for direct recruitment to the posts of ALP & Technician.
As per para 137(2)(ii) of the Indian Railway Establishment Manual Vol.I revised in 1989(Reprint in 2009), the standard upper age limit for ALP and Technician is 27 years for UR candidates.(OBC:30 & SC/ST:32).

Upper Age Limit:

  • UR: 27 years
  • OBC: 30 years
  • SC/ST: 32 years
However, a relaxation of 3 years over and above the aforesaid upper age limit was introduced by Ministry of Railways, as a temporary measure till 03.02.2015. Therefore, after 03.02.2015, the aforesaid relaxation is not available. However, keeping in view the interest of the candidates, this is being reduced in a phased manner over a period of 4 years.


More than 2400+ Candidates were selected in SSC CGL 2016 from Career Power Classroom Programs.
