Public Service Commission (PSC) is likely to publish the circular of 37th BCS examinations to recruit around 1,200 class I officers and teachers in February. Officials at the Public Administration Ministry said the ministry has already finalised a list of vacant posts under various cadres and sent a summary to the Prime Minister for her approval. "On receipt of the PM's nod, the ministry will request the PSC to publish circular of the 37th BCS examinations," an official said on Sunday. Of the 1,200 officials to be recruited, around 200 officials will be for admin cadre, 20 for foreign services, 100 for police, 225 for health and 270 for education cadres. Earlier on November 17 last year, Public Administration Minister Syed Ashraful Islam informed the Parliament of a possible circular on the 37th BCS in January, 2016. The PSC published circular of 36th BCS for recruiting 2,180 officers and teachers on May 31 last year and took preliminary tests of the candidates on January 8 this year. Sources said the PSC is set to take viva of the candidates who have successfully come out in written exams of 35th BCS from January 31. Through the 35th BCS, the PSC will recruit 1,803 officials under various cadres. The PSC, on August 29 last year, published results of 34th BCS through recommending appointment of 2,159 officials under various cadres. The government has already relaxed the condition of recruiting some 1,800 vacant posts of public servants. These posts remained vacant, due to unavailability of quailed candidates from freedom fighters and ethnic community quotas. They will be recruited from the 35th and 36th BCS.
