He said, “We have seen 14 recruitment exams are going to be held on a single day. This hasn’t been seen ever before. Such a recruitment delay has arisen because of Covid-19 and it is temporary.”
The situation would ease in the next couple of weeks. And BPSC would conduct no new recruitment test on Friday and Saturday for now, he added.
Sohrab Hossain said the BPSC delayed the recruitment test of Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) non-cadre craft instructor post from 8 October (Friday) to 14 October (Thursday). The one-hour test will begin at 3:00pm.
“We have planned not to hold any recruitment tests on Friday and Saturday but we are not certain how far we can maintain this. We will try to keep no test on these two days,” the BPSC chairman added.
