The Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPSC) is a quasi judicial body established in 1972 under the Constitution of the People's Republic of Bangladesh.

Abdul Awal, a Master's degree holder from Comilla Victoria College, is still jobless even after standing first in the 29th Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) examinations.

He did not even know that he stood first in the combined merit list, let alone why he was not offered a job.

Awal's case was revealed, rather inadvertently, in the annual report of the Public Service Commission (PSC), a constitutional body, which is responsible for recruiting public servants.

Investigations following the report confirmed that the PSC had cancelled his candidature for a cadre job and further declared him ineligible for public service. But the authorities have not assigned any reason why and how such harsh measure was taken.
