Shillong, Jan 15: The youth wing of the Khun Hynniewtrep National Awakening Movement (KHNAM) political party has written to Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma demanding that the upper age limit for the state for entry into government service ought to be increased to 40 years.

In its letter to the CM, the KHNAM recalled that although it had been demanding enhancement of upper age limit for entry into Government Jobs in the state of Meghalaya since the year 2018, the same had not been given importance by the government till date.

The political party mentioned that the year 2020 had been an extreme year of challenge for the unemployed youth of the state and thousands of them would have been over-age unless the norms are changed.

It pointed out that Article 309 of the Constitution of India empowers the State legislature to make laws regulating the recruitment and conditions of service of persons appointed to public service and posts in connection with the affairs for the State.

“It has been observed that various political parties who are currently partners of the ruling Government has expressed the same and the Government has also stated that the subject matter is under consideration. It may be requested that the same may please be given most priority”, the letter mentioned.

The regional political party cited examples of the  Governments of Nagaland, Assam, Mizoram, Manipur and Tripura that have enhanced the upper age limits for entry into Government service.
