Job seekers have staged demonstration on Dhaka University (DU) campus to press home their demand for extending the age limit up to 35 years for the government jobs.

They organised the demonstration at the pavement of the Raju sculpture on the DU campus around 10 am and later, they brought out a procession to meet their demand.   

The age limit for government, nongovernment, semi-government and autonomous institutions is 30 years.

However, the job seekers have been staging demonstrations to extend the age limit up to 35 years.

Extending support to the demand, Education Minister Education Minister Mohibul Hassan Chowdhury has recently written to the Ministry of Public Administration with a proposal to increase the age limit for entering government services from 30 to 35 years.

While talking to the media on April 20, the education minister said that as a public representative, he has placed the recommendation to the public administration ministry on behalf of the job seekers.

But, the decision will depend upon the respective ministry, he added.
