TNI Bureau: A group of students have urged the Chief Minister of Odisha to raise the upper age limit in competitive examinations from 32 to 42 in the larger interest of youths of the state.

They have cited the example of States such as Haryana, Assam, Goa, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Tripura and Madhya Pradesh that have already enhanced the upper age limit in competitive examinations to 40-45.

In Odisha, the upper age limit remains 32 for general candidates. As they face stiff competition to get through in getting government jobs, enhancement of upper age limit, would come as a boon for them, it’s believed.

The students also take strong exceptions to the long gap between official notifications for same government jobs that make the candidates suffer, as they keep waiting for years to get another chance to apply and lose out in the race when the upper age limit comes into play.

TNI Bureau:  After the incident was highlighted in the media, family members of the ‘Engineer-turned-Beggar’ arrived in Puri and convinced Girija Shankar Mishra to return home.

Although Girija was reluctant to return and even tried to run away from the place, the family members with the help of locals, made all efforts to convinced him and finally succeeded in their bid.

Girija’s story came to light following his altercation with a rickshaw-puller in Puri. Girija had taken up begging due to personal reasons, which he never revealed.

50-year-old Girija, a brilliant student, had done Engineering from CIPET, Bhubaneswar. He also worked in an Engineering College as a Faculty. However, he left his job and family more than a decade ago and took up begging in Puri.
