As the year passes by, the number of university graduates entering the job market, whether he or she is an erudite or not keep on increasing in our country. This is indeed a positive significance that our government and parents are trying hard to give the best education to their child. For this reason, our job markets are most of the time surrounded by unemployed people.
Similarly, this year’s historically democratic elections dragged many of us to the circle of pledges from our political bigwigs, making us believe and contend that our leaders can bring changes and give us a sort of assurance in the many coming years if any sort of problems arise. But what thwarts many of us is some of the pledges made by the elected leaders are not in line with our acts and rules, and making everything possible within 100 days will be a blasé task-we will count the days when elected leaders take the post officially and will gauge the performance starting from the first day itself.
The removal of preliminary examination was one of the pledges that gained the momentum from ubiquitous numbers of fresh novices. Preliminary examination (PE), if removed, may give chance to every university graduates to attempt for becoming civil servant, at least once in their life, by directly appearing the main exam. It will be our government only in Asian countries or throughout the world recruiting civil servants without any sort of entrance examinations. This will escalate the recurrent expenditures of printing thousands and thousands of question papers for the candidates; TA/DA and expenses made for preparing question papers of all categories will also inflate when the actual and real-wanted slot in the civil service is just few hundreds.
We have also seen that our Constitution and its provision states that recurrent expenditures of any sort must be met from the internal resources itself. It will further exacerbate the provisions of BCSR rules of 2012 stating civil servants recruited must be compact, small and efficient. During the past trends, RCSC made the right step in coming up of having PE before main written exam, and carried huge advantages in reducing the costs of university graduates recruitment. Henceforth, if it goes back to the same ocean, every resource will be doubled and will keep increasing year after year. Thus, RCSC, as an independent body stated in our Constitution, must streamline and look to all these issues before going back to the same stream of having no PE. Let us pray that our democratic government sets the right precedent today itself and not in future when everything become cumbersome. Let’s see from the perspective of our capability of internal revenue generation instead of depending on loans to fulfill the promises made by our ambitious politicians and dragging ourselves to the world of conundrum in future.
