The Appellate Division upheld the studentship of 110 students instead of 50 seats in Gonoshasthaya Medical College in 2021-22 batch. The 6-judge Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Obaidul Hasan gave this verdict on Tuesday morning.
At the same time Gonoshasthaya Medical College has been fined Tk 10 lakh for this additional admission. Which is asked to be donated to 2 charities.
Earlier, the High Court had ruled that Gonoshasthaya Medical College can admit 110 students per academic year. Since 2010, Gonoshasthaya Medical College was allowed to admit 110 students each.
It is said that no more than 50 students can be admitted to Gonoshasthaya Medical after the affiliation of Dhaka University in 2021. On appeal against this decision, only 10 people were allowed to be admitted to 60 people.
