Odisha Govt Enhances Upper Age Limit For Govt College Lecturers

Bhubaneswar:17/12/19 Here’s some good news for candidates who want to join as a lecturer in government colleges in Odisha. The state cabinet on Tuesday approved a proposal to enhance the upper age limit for the post from 33 to 48 years.

Briefing the media after a meeting presided over by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik at the Lok Seva Bhawan, Chief Secretary Asit Tripathy said that in clause (c), in sub-rule 2 of rule 4 of Odisha Education Service (OES) College Branch (CB) Recruitment Rules, 1990, the age limit for applying for the post of lecturers in government colleges is from 21 to 33 years allowing admissible relaxations in age for different reserved categories of candidates as admissible from time to time.

He said that the Higher Education Department had filed a requisition to the Odisha Public Service Commission (OPSC) to select eligible candidates under the rules for filling  606 of vacant degree lecturer posts on October 1 this year.

Later, representations and recommendations were received from various quarters to enhance the upper age limit for these posts with the following reasons.

—In OES (CB) Recruitment Rules, 1990, the requisite qualification for recruitment to the post of lecturer (CB) was Master’s Degree in the concerned subject whereas, in 2012, PhD/NET qualification is mandatory for recruitment to such posts. When the qualification is enhanced, the upper age limit of 33 years needs to be enhanced because acquiring higher qualification needs more time.
