The Medical Degrees (Repeal) Bill, 2021 was placed in Parliament on Monday.
Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque placed the Bill and it was sent to the respective Standing Committee for further examination.
The Committee was asked to submit its report within seven days.
The proposed law will abolish the Medical Degrees Act 1916 after its enactment as the law lost its necessity following the enactment of Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC) Act 2010.
The Medical Degrees Act 1916 actually used to determine everything regarding the medical degrees and their standards.
But all provisions of the act were incorporated in the BMDC Act 2010.
So, the Medical Degrees Act 1916 doesn’t have any necessity now.
