The verdict has cleared any legal bar for the staff to join their duty stations

The Supreme Court (SC) has scrapped an appeal challenging a High Court (HC) verdict that declared an appointment of 1,650 sub-assistant agriculture officers at the Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) legal.

An Appellate Division bench headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order on Monday, clearing legal bar for those 1,650 people to join duty.

Senior lawyer Barrister Rokanuddin Mahmud moved the plea before the court, while Attorney General AM Amin Uddin and Additional Attorney General Sheikh Mohammad Morshed stood for the state.

On September 16, The High Court passed the verdict after holding hearing on a writ filed in this regard.

The government on January 23, 2018, issued a circular for recruiting 1,650 sub-assistant agriculture officers and released the result of recruitment test on January 17, 2020. 

However, many candidates, who failed in viva, first lodged complaints with Agriculture Secretary and DAE director general and later filed writ with the High Court.
