A writ petition was filed with the High Court on Sunday seeking its directive to raise the maximum age limit for entry into Bangladesh Public Service Commission (PSC) jobs to 32 years from existing 30.
Five government job-seekers, including Bijit Sarkar, filed the writ.
The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman is likely to hear the petition.
It also challenged rule No. 14 of the Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPSC) regulations-2014.
PSC Chairman, education and public administration secretaries, and others concerned were made respondents to the rule.
Barrister ABM Altaf Hossain stood for the petitioners.
According to the writ, as per the rule 14 of the BPSC regulations, an applicant must have age limit of 30 for taking part in the BCS examination under general cadre while in the Judicial Service Examination an applicant aged 32 can sit for the examination, which is contradictory to the rule.
