PESHAWAR, 23 November: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) has ordered the Nowshera Medical College to start admissions of the students.

The administration of the medical college had approached the PHC with a petition stating that they are affiliated with the Khyber Medical University and they have fulfilled all the requirements including the building and fees but the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) is not granting it registration. The court sought reply from the PMDC president and secretary and asked the college administration to start admissions.

The Nowshera Medical College is facing admissions issue since 2014 and its 150 seats for admission are lying vacant.
