Demand for raising the age of entry into the job as an ‘incentive’ to 32

The recruitment process in the government service has stopped a lot during the coronation period. As a result, the age of many is increasing at this time. The job-seeking youth organization has demanded that the age limit for entry into government service should be raised to 32 years as a coronary incentive. They made this demand to the Prime Minister to remove the frustration of the youth.

The organization made the demand at a press conference at the Dhaka Reporters’ Unity in the capital’s Segunbagicha on Sunday at 12 noon. They have announced a rally to implement the demand.

The job-seeking students said, ‘Students in Corona have been losing their lives for almost two years. Therefore, in addition to all the incentives of the Corona government, in the year of Mujib and 50 years of independence, we, the unemployed youth, demanded that the age limit for entry into government service be raised permanently to 32 years as an ‘incentive’ of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

At the press conference, they said, “We strongly demand and request to raise the age limit for entry into government service to 32 as a coronary incentive as per the ‘promise’ (taking reasonable action based on reality) mentioned in the Awami League government’s 2016 election manifesto.” They also said that a public meeting will be held on June 11 in Shahbag to implement the demand.

In a written statement at the press conference, it was said that a review of the history of raising the age limit for entry into government service shows that in 1991, when the average age was 55 years, the age of entry into service was 26 and the retirement age was 56 years. In 1991, considering the situation of session jam, the age of entry into the job was increased from 26 to 30 years. Then in 1991 the average life expectancy was 56 years. Then in 2011 the retirement age was increased to 59 and for the great heroic freedom fighters it was 60. Due to this 2-3 year increase in retirement, there were not many job advertisements at this time. In the 30 years from 1991 to 2021, the average life expectancy increased by 18 years to 63 years. But the age of entry into the job has not increased even in these 30 years.

Tanvir Hossain, Sajid Rahman, Sumna Rahman and Anwar Sakin presented their demands on behalf of the job-seeking youth. Students of Dhaka University, Jagannath University, Jahangirnagar University, Dhaka College, Bangla College, Tejgaon College and other educational institutions were present at the press conference.
