Among the vacant posts, 50,930 are first class, 55,456 are second class, one lakh 8,038 are third class and 92,564 are fourth class.
Job seekers are also angry as a large number of posts are vacant. They say that there are so many vacancies due to the indifference of the concerned ministries of the government. Due to the lack of ‘sincerity’ of the senior officials of the ministry, it is not possible to fill the posts on time.
However, State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said they hoped the coronavirus outbreak would subside in August. If the situation improves, decide on the pending issues.
Meanwhile, an official of the Ministry of Public Administration said on the condition of anonymity that there are so many vacancies in the government service due to the ‘indifference’ of the ministries. These posts can be filled quickly only if the ministries are more active. But it is also true that all the time someone is retiring, new appointments are being made. The number of employees in government jobs never goes up to 100 percent.
It is learned that the Public Service Commission (PSC) appoints first and second class posts. The ministry directly appoints third and fourth class posts.
There are no accurate statistics on the number of job seekers who have increased since the announcement of government jobs due to the coronavirus epidemic.
An official of the Ministry of Public Administration said that no appointment has been made in the last six months for various non-cadre posts and third and fourth class posts. But due to the end of the service age, many officers and employees have retired at this time.
The Controller of Examinations (Cadre) of the Public Service Commission (PSC), IEM Nesar Uddin, told the media that the recruitment process for the cadre posts is still going well despite the epidemic. However, several examinations could not be taken for non-cadre posts.
Present Status of Various Sector
According to the Ministry of Labor, a total of six and a half crore people are currently employed in the country. Of these, one crore people work in the formal sector and five and a half crore people work in the informal sector.
According to statistics, there are 5,201 vacancies in various ministries and departments of the government and 2,56,833 vacancies in departments and directorates.
There are 13,612 vacancies in the offices of the Divisional Commissioners and Deputy Commissioners and 1,11,792 vacancies in the autonomous organizations and various corporations.
Of these, one lakh 79 thousand 462 people are working against two lakh 20 thousand 402 posts of the first class.

According to the statistics, out of 14 lakh 33 thousand 946 employees of the government, 10 lakh 36 thousand 529 are men, and three lakh 96 thousand 417 are women.
Of the female employees, 33,551 are first class, 44,593 are second class, 2,63,018 are third class and 45,095 are fourth class.
As the spread of Covid-19 continues to increase in Bangladesh, PSC has not issued any recruitment notification during the 7 consecutive days of the general holiday from March 26. Earlier, the commission had not issued any new notification for recruitment since last December.
However, in the first week of June, after the general holiday on May 30, the PSC has published several recruitment notices for non-cadres. Several ministries have issued notices.
State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain said, “I hope the coronavirus infection will decrease by August.” If the virus infection does not increase, the BCS test will be done in October-November. Many decisions will be made based on the situation in August. The pending issues will be decided at the end of August.
