Warrant of Precedence of 1975
Section/Order/Article/Rule/Regulation Head Note

Civil awards holders and holders of gallantry awards of Bir Uttam should be included in the Warrant of Precedence–
The Warrant of Precedence of the neighbouring countries include the holders of highest civil awards, however the impugned Warrant of Precedence of our country does not include such dignitaries, who are not constitutional or public functionaries. As such, it is expected that those dignitaries who have been honoured or decorated with civil awards, e.i., Shadhinata Padak, or Ekhushey Padak, and those valiant freedom fighters who have been honoured with gallantry awards of Bir Uttam should be included in the Table of the impugned Warrant of Precedence in such order as deemed appropriate. .....Bangladesh =VS= Md. Ataur Rahman, (Civil), 2018 (1) [4 LM (AD) 40] ....View Full Judgment

The impugned Warrant of Precedence being based on utter irrationality and arbitrariness is to be modified and amended in the following manner–
1) As the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, all constitutional functionaries shall be placed first in order of priority in the Table of the impugned Warrant of Precedence.
2) Members of judicial service holding the posts of District Judges or equivalent posts of District Judges shall be placed at Serial No.16 in the Table along with the Secretaries to the Government and equivalent public servants in the service of the Republic.
3) Additional District Judges or holders of equivalent judicial posts shall be placed at the serial number 17 immediately after the District Judges. .....Bangladesh =VS= Md. Ataur Rahman, (Civil), 2018 (1) [4 LM (AD) 40] ....View Full Judgment
