“The Public Service Commission has given us a proposal in this regard. And now we’re working on it to place it to the Secretaries Committee. After the committee’s approval, it will be placed before to the Prime Minister. On her approval, it will be sent to the President for promulgation of the rules. And the next BCS examinations will be held under the new rules,” a high official at the Public Administration told UNB wishing anonymity.
In reply to a question, the official said the proposal will be placed to the Secretaries Committee soon.
A member of the Public Service Commission who also spoke on condition of anonymity told UNB that the BCS examinations system will be changed soon.
“In consultation with the Law Ministry, the draft BCS (age, eligibility and direct test for appointment) Rules-2013, prepared by the Public Service Commission, is now under process at the Ministry of Public Administration, as the BCS Examination Rules-1982 has become infructuous following the Supreme Court judgment declaring illegal the 7th amendment to the Constitution,” the member said. “I hope the new rules will be effective from the 35th BCS,” he added.
In reply to a question when the circular of the 35th BCS examinations will be issued, he said, “We’re yet to fix the date as the Public Administration Ministry is working on formulating new rules.”
