Breaking News-50, 50 Formula For Admission in Medical Colleges Has Been Challenged in High Court
Two girl students of F.Sc Pre Medical have challenged the 50, 50 formula for admission in medical and dental colleges in Lahore High Court. Sadia and Asma Javaid blamed UHS that UHS advertised admission in medical and dental colleges on open merit but when students submitted the form UHS introduced 50, 50 quota system in spite of open merit policy without any prior intimation to students, They argued that quota system policy is discriminatory towards female and is against basic human rights and constitution of Pakistan. Although UHS made this policy on 4th February 2014 but it was implemented five days before the last date of admission on 18th September, 2014.
Honorable Judge of Lahore High Court Justice Ayesha A Malik heard the petition and notices have been issued to Secretary health Punjab, University of Health and Sciences and Pakistan Medical and Dental Association for presenting their point of view before court. In fact PMDC introduced this policy not UHS. Now court will decide either the quota system will be implemented or not. Students who have objection can also become party in this case.
