Abstract
The aim of the study is to describe the general upper limit of the age of the universe with the help of different cosmological models of the universe. Here homogeneous and isotropic assumptions of the observed universe are not strictly followed to calculate the present age of the universe. Einstein equations play an important role in cosmology to determine the present age of the universe. The study stresses on the works of Friedmann, RobertsonWalker (FRW) universe and Raychaudhuri equations. The paper tries to find the general upper limit of the age of the universe with easier mathematical calculations.
