Chairman of the Bangladesh Public Service Commission (PSC) Dr Muhammad Sadiq on Thursday said the recruitment through the 40th BCS will be done based on merit, not quota.
“The quota system won’t be applicable in the recruitment,” he told UNB adding that it was mentioned in the circular of the 40th BCS that the cadres will be appointed on merit basis.
Dr Sadiq, however, said the quota system will be there in the recruitment of the 39th special BCS and other examinations as those are already under process.
The 40th BCS application process began on September 30 and will continue till November 15.
The government has issued a gazette notification on Thursday abolishing the existing quota system in the recruitment process of the first and second class government jobs.
