The government has relaxed the age limit for all government job seekers, except for the Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS), considering the Covid-19 situation.

The Public Administration Ministry on Thursday issued a notification in this regard, asking government offices, which completed all procedure for publishing job circulars before March 25, but could not advertise due to the Covid-19 situation, to fix March 25, 2020 as the date of an applicant’s maximum age in their recruitment advertisements (except for the BCS).
