On Wednesday, the Cabinet at its weekly meeting approved a proposal to abolish the existing quota system in first and second class government jobs

The Public Administration has issued a circular regarding the quota system.

The circular was issued on Thursday.

According to the circular, signed by Public Administration Secretary Foyez Ahmed, recruitment for first (9th grade) and second class (10th-13th grade) government jobs will be on a merit basis and the existing quota system has been scrapped. 

The decision will be made effective immediately, it said.

On Wednesday, the Cabinet at its weekly meeting approved a proposal to abolish the existing quota system in the first and second class government jobs.

Cabinet Secretary Md Shafiul Alam also told reporters: "Now, recruitment for the first and second class jobs (from Grade 9 to Grade 13) will be made directly on a merit basis and the quota system will exist only in the Grade 3 and Grade 4 jobs.”

He added that the decision to abolish the quotas may be reviewed at a later date, after examining the impact of the abolition on the socio-economic condition of current beneficiaries of the quota system.

Meanwhile, beneficiaries of the freedom fighter quota protested the decision, by blockading the Shahbagh intersection in Dhaka.

They also announced that they would hold a rally around 3pm on Saturday regarding the matter.
