No bar on bank recruitment tests Friday as judge freezes HC order


On Sunday, the High Court halted entry tests for nationalised Sonali, Rupali and Janata banks following a petition challenging last year’s job circulars issued by eight banks in different times.

Lawyers had said then the order meant the Jan 12 written tests to recruit senior officers, officers and cash officers for eight banks, including the three state-owned lenders, have been postponed.

The Supreme Court’s chamber judge stayed the order on Thursday after the Bangladesh Bank moved a petition.
