In Bangladesh, succumbing to protests by the students, Bangladeshi Prime Minister Minister Sheikh Hasina announced she will be abolishing the quota system for government jobs.

According to IANS, Bangladesh has existing quota system of 56 % of jobs in the public sector reserved for children of freedom fighters ,women, ethnic minorities ,people with disabilities and citizens of some backward districts a quota.  "We believe this is injustice. These special groups represent only two per cent of the population while the remaining 98 per cent of people fight for 44 per cent of jobs " said a student leader.

Many countries around the globe have “reservation type” policies, primarily based on ethnicity not reservation quota based upon caste.
