Update : 15 Sep 2020, 06:22 PM

The government has decided to consider and extend the age limit for people who turned 30 on or after March 25, when a nationwide lockdown was announced, so they can apply for public service jobs.

State Minister for Public Administration, Farhad Hossain, disclosed the matter to reporters on Tuesday, saying: “The prime minister ordered this.”

Previously, he said his ministry would send a proposal to the Prime Minister’s Office to consider adjusting for the age limit of those who, in the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, crossed the age limit of 30 to apply for government jobs.

An official at the Public Administration Ministry said a circular in this regard will be published soon.

Bangladesh went on a 66-day lockdown starting on March 26. No recruitment circular was published by the Public Service Commission (PSC) during that time.
