You're right about it. The relaxation is only in terms of the upper
age limit. It is mandatory even for a VI to complete the prescribed
age limit (lower limit) as required by the commission on the specified
date. Further, there is no toleration even for a single day regarding
the lower age limit. Hence, he is not eligible to take the
examination. BTW, you may consult the Rajasthan State Service
Comission, but this is the policy of the UPSC. I think the same rules
apply there as well.

Cheers!
