West Bengal Government on 17 February 2012 raised the age limit for the general category candidates seeking state government jobs from 37 years to 40 years adding up to the convenience and happiness of the candidates interested in government jobs. 

"We have further extended the age limit for Group D and Group C staff by another three years to 40 years for general category candidates", said Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee after a Cabinet Meeting held at the state secretariat. 

For Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe category, the limit had been raised from 42 years to 45 years and from 40 years to 43 years for Other Backward Classes and Physically Handicapped candidates.

Banerjee said that already 275,000 jobs had been created and now after raising the age limit more people can hope to get government jobs in the state.

"We plan to create 400,000 to 500,000 jobs both in the government and private sectors", she added.

Earlier, the previous Left Government had raised the limit by five years from 32 years to 37 years.
