IBM - Age discrimination in India?

Something doesn't seem right with this job advertisement from IBM in Times of India newspaper (mid-June 2010). It is openly seeking candidates below 35 years of age! Why would they think those older than 35 can't do Voice Tech Support? What's more surprising is that the same advertisement also says IBM is an equal opportunity employer! I guess age is an exception? Perhaps, an attempt to blend American and Indian laws? It also says IBM helps forward thinking companies make a difference - not quite convincing, if this is age discrimination.
