  1. I want to know is there any age limit to get this reservation if a person belongs to this criteria and he wants to get admission in any college …tell me if there is an age barrier

    • There is no age limit for these reservations. But the age limitations will be there in the admission and job qualifications and entrance examinations. If a candidates is eligible to write an exam / to get a job, he is eligible for the reservations as well.

  2. For ews reservation if candidate has separate rasancard and bhamasah card then income of family will count on base of rasancard family member or without rasan card family members
