2 more pvt universities fined for enrolling extra students

2 more pvt universities fined 
for enrolling extra students

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court yesterday fined two private universities Tk 10 lakh each for enrolling more than 50 students to their law departments in a semester violating rules of University Grants Commission (UGC). The apex court asked the two private universities---- Metropolitan University, Sylhet and International Islamic University, Chittagong (IIUC) to pay the fine to Bangladesh Bar Council immediately.

The four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Justice Hasan Foez Siddique passed the order after disposing of two separate review petitions filed by the bar council seeking necessary order in this regard. In its order, the apex court said that students would be allowed to appear for the bar council enrolment test if the two universities pay the fine.

University Grants Commission had on April 23 in 2014 issued a directive saying that private universities cannot admit more than 50 students to the law department per semester.

The bar council on October 1 last year issued a notification saying that it will not provide registration cards to more than 50 candidates from private universities per semester.

Students of different universities including Metropolitan University, Sylhet and International Islamic University, Chittagong (IIUC) filed separate writ petitions with the High Court challenging the UGC and Bar Council's decision.

The court in an interim order asked the Bar Council to allow them to sit for the enrollment exams.

Later, Bangladesh Bar Council filed appeals with the Supreme Court against the High Court order.

Earlier on February 19 and 20, the apex court also fined City University and Southeast University Tk 10 lakh respectively over the same issue.
