PSC submits report on civil service quota

The Public Service Commission (PSC) yesterday submitted recommendations on quota system for civil service recruitments to the caretaker government, a government handout said yesterday.
The commission prepared the recommendations based on the World Bank report on 'Quota system for civil service recruitment in Bangladesh' and views of different seminars held in Dhaka and other cities.
PSC Member Suraiya Begum said the recommendation report was submitted to the establishment ministry and it will be forwarded to the chief adviser very soon. However, she denied to explain on the report.
The issue of 'quota system' came forward following media reports, and demonstrations of students.
The World Bank report suggested for 50 percent quota for both cadre and non-cadre posts in civil service recruitments.
Prospective BCS candidates staged demonstrations across the country few months ago demanding cancellation of all sorts of quota in BCS examination.
Currently 30 percent quota is slated for freedom fighters or their offspring, 10 percent for women, 10 percent for districts, and 5 percent for indigenous people and only 45 percent is merit quota.
