The High Court today has directed to appoint 84 persons recommended in 36th, 37th and 39th BCS in different cadres as soon as possible. Besides, the Secretary of Public Administration has been asked to implement this directive. 

A High Court bench of Justice Mamnoon Rahman and Justice Khandaker Diliruzzaman passed the order on Wednesday.

Advocate Siddique Ullah Mia and Advocate Mizanur Rahman appeared for the writ petition while Deputy Attorney General Amit Das Gupta represented the state.

Among the recommended candidates in BCS, 10 from 36th, 37 from 37th and 36 from 39th BCS, including a total of 84 people have been instructed to be recruited in different cadres. The court passed the verdict after a final hearing of four separate writ petitions.  

After the verdict, the petitioners’ lawyer Siddique Ullah Mia said the petitioners applied when the Bangladesh Public Service Commission (PSC) published circulars for the appointment of 37th BCS on February 29, 2016, and 39th BCS on  April 8, 2018. After passing the written and oral examinations, as usual, the PSC recommended the recruitment of a total of 1,314 people in various cadres in the 37th BCS on June 12, 2018. 

Subsequently, the Ministry of Public Administration appointed a total of 1,248 people on March 20, 2019, and later on different dates. But out of the 1,314 recommended persons, a total of 66 persons including 36 writ petitioners were denied appointment.

In the 39th BCS, on April 30, 2019, a total of 4,792 persons were recommended for the post of Assistant Surgeon in the BCS Health Cadre. However, a total of 72 people, including 36 writ petitioners, were denied employment. Despite repeatedly contacting the Ministry of Public Administration, they filed a writ petition in the High Court for non-appointment.

Lawyer Mohammad Siddique Ullah Mia said the petitioners got justice with today’s verdict. The way to recruit them became easier.
