'The quota is as it was before'

The quota for disabled people in government job recruitment remains unchanged, Cabinet Secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam said on Monday.

Shafiul Alam made the remark following the first meeting of the new cabinet at the Prime Minister’s Office.

“The law on the quota system is yet to be changed. Our administrative orders cannot supersede the law,” the cabinet secretary said in response to a reporter’s question after the meeting.

Regarding the quota for people with disabilities in government recruitment, Shafiul Alam said: “The quota is as it was before.”

The government formed a committee, led by the cabinet secretary, to review the quota system in government job recruitment after nationwide protests by students and jobseekers began in April last year.

Subsequently, cabinet approved a set of recommendations from the committee, removing quotas in first and second class government jobs late last year.

At Monday’s meeting, cabinet approved a national action plan for addressing the needs of people with disabilities. The plan is based on the Persons with Disabilities Rights and Protection Act 2013, and the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act 2015.
