there is one person who started ca after his retirement from government service at the age of 60 and completed his ca by 65 years. i know one uncle who used to get 60000rs per month salary and he has family of two children still studying . but he took voluntary retirement @ 45yrs. JOINEDD IN CA in 2002 and completed ca in 2009 @ 52yrs. so therefore age is not a barrier to anything. for example one lady age 63 yrs did swimming continuisly 163 kilometers for many days continuously and registerd in guiness records .which many of us however younger than her did not achieve..
so if u have love towards subject and enough money support family u can join and complete ca.
ALL THE BEST

Dear Friends and CCI members
This is my humble effort to bring a real life story. There are a lot of people who wish to become CA. But, their age factors, family responsibility etc will prevent them to become their goal. But there is one man who proves that age factor is not a limiting factor if you have a strong will. Those who want to become a CA don’t take the age factors in to consideration. Please go through the following part of discussion.
