The media reports of Niti Ayog's recommendation for restricting the maximum age limit for the Civil Services Exam, is welcome. But, the rule  should be applicable across the board by covering all communities like SC,ST,OBC etc.

A level-playing field  for all instead of  allowing concessions like different age limits, and worse still, extra and even unlimited number of chances to appear in the Civil Services exams  held by the UPSC,on political considerations is unethical amounting to electoral fraud on the country.

May it be understood that selecting candidates  with age relaxations  as civil servants at advanced age,leave practically little time for service before superannuation. Some aspirants appear for as many as 7 to 8 times.

One appreciates the concern for giving such age-related and merit-related concessions to CS aspirants due to government's drive in filling vacancies for reserved categories by ignoring merit and promoting mediocrity.

Does it help in providing Good governance? No impact assessment studies have ever been conducted by DOP&T and Deptt of Admn reforms,headed by successive Prime ministers,whether the reservation policy has succeeded in achieving what  was intended by the founding fathers of the Constitution of India?

Even in an advanced democracy like the US,there is nothing called reservation for citizens with colours  vis-a-vis the whites.And lo and behold,the evil of racialism is far less virulent there than the deep roots  of castes and communities prevalent in India.
