The government's rules of business have been amended to accommodate 'special assistants to the chief adviser' in the administration, according to official sources.

A circular to this effect was issued on Wednesday following the chief adviser's office sent a summary to the Bangabhaban for the presidential approval, said an official.

The circular was not made available immediately.

The amendment was done in haste after the government decided to appoint six 'special assistants' to reduce workloads on advisers, sources said.

The prime minister, now the chief adviser, as per allocation of business can assign any minister or minister of state.

'The prime minister may assign a division or a ministry or more than one division or ministry to the charge of the prime minister or a minister of state, provided that a division or ministry not so assigned shall be in direct charge of the prime minister,' according to the rules of business 1996.

The amended rule (rule 4 of the rules of business) has made room for special assistants to perform under the chief adviser.

Another notification specifying the status and remuneration of the 'special assistants' is expected in a day or two, officials said.
