There is no law that bars a company from hiring people of a certain age or above. Since it is not written nor implied, you may go ahead and hire the person. Maybe taking policies or joining other benefit programmes may not be possible due to the age factor but not hiring.

There isn't any law as such that restricts the age of candidates for hiring or mentions a specific retirement age. However, once a person achieves the age of 58; contribution to Pension Scheme of EPFO is discontinued; and the entire contribution is made in Provident Fund.
