Both the universities have to pay the money to the liver transplant unit of the BIRDEM General Hospital

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court has fined Tk10 lakh each to the Stamford University and Dhaka International University (DIU) for breaching admission rules.

Both the universities were fined as they took more than 50 students in their respective law departments, without following the rules of Bangladesh Bar Council and the University Grant Commission (UGC).

The four justice bench of the Appellate Division, headed by the Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, passed the order on Wednesday.

The court also upheld the High Court order that was directed to the Bar Council Authority to provide registration cards and form filling of the advocateship enrollment exam to the Stamford University and Dhaka International University law students. 

Following the court order, both the universities have to pay the stipulated fine  to the liver transplant unit of BIRDEM General Hospital.

Earlier, the Bar Council informed that they will not allow 11 private university students to take part in the advocateship enrollment exam, because of the universities' failure to maintain the admission guidelines of the Bar Council and UGC .

As a result, around 2 thousand students filed a writ petition against the High Court's decision. The High Court then  passed the order in favour of students.
