Normally, in any Employment advertisements, the upper age limit as at a specified date shall be specified. If the Candidate is within the upper age limit as on the date specified in the Advertisement, he is eligible to be considered for employment, if selected. The selection process may take sometime and by the time the Candidate is, in fact, selected for Employment, he might have crossed the upper age limit noted in the advertisement some time ago. Therefore, the criteria in the case as explained by you is the age as on the date specified in the advertisement and whether the candidate is within the upper age limit.

Why case law is needed? Its only a matter of routine and logical application of the contents of the advertisement.

Were there a notification stating the exact date like must not exceed...........years on Aug,2021? Every notification must state this important requirement. The age in the notification advertisement is final and not at any later stage, as an appointment may take place even after one year from the date of notification and more also..

Procedural query should be avoided.
