The Supreme Court has stayed the High Court order that halted the all the activities to hold recruitment tests of three state-owned banks-Sonali, Rupali and Janata Bank- supposed to be held on January 12.
As a result, there is no bar to hold the examination for recruiting senior officer, officer and officer (cash) in three banks.
Chamber Judge of the Appellate Division Syed Mahmud Hossain stayed for six weeks the High Court order that halted the recruitment test.
The chamber judge came up with the order after hearing a petition filed by Bangladesh Bank on Thursday.
Mosarraf Hossain, member secretary of Bankers Selection Committee (BSC) said now, there is no bar to hold recruitment test of the three state owned banks on Friday.
Attorney General Mahbubey Alam stood for the bank.
Earlier on January 7, the High Court stayed the recruitment process following a writ petition filed by 28 candidates who applied for the different posts of Sonali Bank as per the circular issued in 2016.
The recruitment examination for senior officers of eight state owned banks has been scheduled to be held on January 12.
The three banks issued a circular for recruitment test in 2016. Without holding the test, Bankers Selection Association issued a combined circular in 2017 for holding recruitment test of eight state banks including the three, for the posts of senior officer, officer and cash officer.
