Public Administration Minister Syed Ashraful Islam on Tuesday told the Parliament that government has no plan to cancel the contractual appointment system in the government services.
"Contractual appointment is still required in the government service, so, the government has no immediate plan to scrap the contractual appointment system," Ashraf said.
Ashraf, also the Awami League General Secretary, said this while replying to a starred question from Mahmud Ud Samad Chowdhury.
The Minister said the government appoints competent retired military, civil officials and non-government specialists on contractual basis to specialized posts and in the agencies where there is a lack of specialised or technical manpower.
Through the contractual appointment, the government keeps continuation of the functions of the government agencies where the normal appointment is not possible in hurried manner due to administrative and legal complexities.
In reply to a scripted question from Begum Pinu Khan, the Public Administration Minister said four women are in government service as secretaries, 108 as joint secretaries, 186 as deputy secretaries and three as deputy commissioners.
Besides, 41 other women were Officers on Special Duty (OSD) as of September 1 this year due to various reasons, including maternity leave, education leave and training, he noted.
