The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court will hold a hearing on Wednesday (July 10) on a High Court verdict that declared the decision to cancel quota system, including the first and second-class freedom fighter quota in government jobs, illegal.

The chamber judge of the Appellate Division Justice Md Ashfaqul Islam set the date for the hearing on Tuesday.
Attorney General AM Amin Uddin stood for the state, while Adv Shah Manzurul Haque was present pn behalf of the petitioner.

On July 4, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court upheld the High Court’s verdict.

On June 5, the High Court declared illegal the circular that cancelled the quotas, including those for freedom fighters, in first and second-class government jobs.

As a result, the 30 per cent quota for freedom fighters in government jobs will remain in place.

On October 4, 2018, the Ministry of Public Administration issued a circular to implement the cabinet's decision to abolish the existing quota system for direct recruitment to first and second-class posts in government jobs.
