The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC) cleared the way for holding Bangladesh Bank assistant director (AD) recruitment test, which is scheduled to be held on October 28.

Justice M Enayetur Rahim of Appellate Division Chamber Judge Court today stayed the October 23 High Court order that had put the test on hold for one month.

Attorney General AM Amin Uddin took part in the hearing for the state, while Advocate Khan Mohammad Shamim Aziz argued for the central bank. Barrister Anik R Haque moved a petition filed in this regard.

A High Court division bench comprising Justice Md Mozibur Rahman Miah and Justice Kazi Md Ejarul Haque Akondo on October 23 had imposed a stay on the test after holding hearing on a writ petition filed in this regard.

The court also issued a rule, asking finance secretary, public administration secretary, Bangladesh Bank governor and director of its human resource wing to explain as to why it shall not pass an order for correcting the central bank circular regarding the age limit of the candidates.

The central bank authorities published the circular for recruitment of AD (general) on May 10, 2022. A candidate named Mirja Rakibul Hasan filed the writ, challenging the maximum age limit matter in the circular.
