How’s this for a HR policy?

Once you turn 35 – you're out! 

That's what one radio network in India has just tried to do to 100 plus On-Air staff or RJ's as they are called over there.

All India Radio, said it had to bring in the new age rules because the station needed to "infuse freshness in presentation of programmes".  


The Kolkata-based broadcaster initially set the cut-off at 30 years – but then raised it to 35.   The Telegraph of India also reported : RJ's above 35 can stay on if they pass the test and prove they don’t sound “too mature and boring”, relenting on an initial plan to fire them. 

What's even more interesting, is that All India Radio is a national government network operation.
