The bill declares the board’s employees as public servants and fixes their retirement age at 60 years

The cabinet has approved the draft of the “Bangladesh Madrasah Education Board Bill, 2020″ to replace a 1978 ordinance in this regard.

The approval came on Monday from the weekly cabinet meeting, which Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina joined from her official residence in Dhaka through videoconference while other cabinet members were connected from the secretariat.

“According to the Article 28 of the proposed law, there’ll be [legal] protection of the activities the madrasa education has so far done since 1978. The activities would be considered as done under this [proposed] law and no activity [of the previous time] can be challenged as illegal,” said Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam at a press briefing.

He said two important changes brought in the bill are that the board’s employees have been declared as public servants and their retirement age fixed at 60 years like all other education board employees.

In December last year, the cabinet had approved the bill in principle bringing some amendments to the existing Madrasah Education Ordinance of 1978 as the Supreme Court declared all the laws made during military regimes illegal.

The cabinet also approved the draft of an agreement to be signed between the government of Bangladesh and Lumbini Development Trust of Nepal to set up a Buddha Temple at Lumbini in Nepal with the finance of Bangladesh.

Some 71.43% of the cabinet's decisions have so far been implemented in the April to June quarter.

Out of the 28 decisions, 20 decisions have been implemented while remaining eight decisions are being implemented, according to the Cabinet Division.
