The body, led by Cabinet Secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam on September 17, recommended abolishing the quota system from the 9th to 13th grades (1st class and 2nd class) of government jobs and submitted their reports to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

Public Administration Ministry Joint Secretary and Quota Review Committee spokesperson Abul Kasem Md Mohiuddin said the recommendations made by a government body over quota will be placed before the next cabinet meeting for approval.

"We have already sent the recommendations to the Cabinet Division and hope it will be placed in the next cabinet meeting for approval. The Public Administration Ministry will issue a gazette after the cabinet's approval," Kasem said on Wednesday, reported UNB.

The body, led by Cabinet Secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam on September 17, recommended abolishing the quota system from the 9th to 13th grades (1st class and 2nd class) of government jobs and submitted their reports to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

On July 2, the government formed a seven-member committee to review the existing quota system in the public service.

Earlier in April, students of public and private universities across the country took to the streets in a strong movement, demanding reforms in the quota system in the public service recruitment process.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in face of the movements, on April 11, announced in Parliament the abolishment of all types of quotas from government jobs.

But no gazette notification has yet been issued regarding the abolishment of the quota system as per the Prime Minister's declaration.

On July 12, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said it is not possible to reform freedom fighters' quota in government jobs as there was a bar from High Court in its regard.
