Medical Degrees (Repeal) Bill goes through Parliament

Parliament on Wednesday passed the Medical Degrees (Repeal) Bill, repealing the Medical Degrees Act 1916.

Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque moved the Bill and it was passed by voice vote.

The proposed law will abolish the Medical Degrees Act 1916 as it became obsolete following the enactment of Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC) Act 2010.

The Medical Degrees Act 1916 was actually used to determine everything regarding the medical degrees and their standards.

But all the provisions of the act were incorporated in the BMDC Act 2010.
