According to this the crucial date for determining the age limits for competitive examinations held for recruitment by UPSC/SSC etc. in the first half of the year is the first day of January of the year in which the examination is held; and if the examination is held in the second half of the year, the crucial date will be the first day of August of the year in which the examination is held.

If an examination is held in two parts on two different dates of the year, the crucial date for determining the age limits will normally be the 1st of January when both parts of the examination fall in the first half of the year, and when both parts of the examination fall in the second half of the year the crucial date for determining the age limits will be the 1st of August .
