  • This the very wrong decision by the Government of Pakistan rather than to focus give more relaxation to aspirants, govt reduced the age limit.
    In India the age limit for IAS for 32 years and 06 times they can try.
    I think government’s decision will decrease the result instead-of improving.

  • Government increases problem only, it doesn’t bring any improvement in css, they should bring such rules, through which candidates can get success in CSS easily
