The 40th BCS application process began on September 30 and will continue till November 15 of this year

Bangladesh Public Service Commission (PSC) Chairman Dr Muhammed Sadique has said the 40th Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) recruitment will be based on merit, not on quota.

The PCS chairman on Thursday said: "The quota system won't be applicable in the recruitment and it was mentioned in the circular of the 40th BCS that the cadres will be appointed on a merit basis,” reported UNB. 

However, Dr Sadique said: “The quota system will be there in the recruitment of the 39th special BCS and other examinations, as those are already under process.”

The 40th BCS application process began on September 30 and will continue till November 15 of this year.

The government issued a gazette notification on Thursday, mentioning the abolition of the existing quota system in the recruitment process of first and second class government jobs.
