let us clearly grasp the true essence of css exams. actually css exams are conducted to select matchless and impeccable youngsters of Pakistan in order to sustain the bureaucracy. Since the very aim of css is that (above mentioned) then why there are such allocations on the basis of quota?????? this is the gross injustice to the very fabric of meritocracy.........Intelligentsia must ponder over this concern.

I don't agree with full open merit policy ........ if there is open merit policy then there will be no representation of smaller/backward provinces in the higher bureaucracy of Pakistan. Currently all the Chief Secretaries working in the four provinces belong from Punjab. There is no single federal secretary in Islamabad belonging from Balochistan. When we see such injustices then we say that we are being ruled as a colony of Punjab.
