Mass and charge distribution of the cross-section for the fission fragments obtained in the decay of hot and rotating compound system formed in the reaction 48Ca + 162Dy → 210Rn* at an incident energy 139.6 MeV has been calculated using the dynamical cluster-decay model. Isotopic composition for each element belonging to the symmetric mass region has been obtained. The shell closure at N=50 for light and at Z=50 for heavy mass binary fragments gives a deep minima in the fragmentation potential at touching configuration and governs the fission partition of the compound system. The fission fragments of the symmetric mass region have their dominating presence along with strong odd-even staggering i.e., even-Z fission fragments are more probable than the odd ones, similar to the observed trends of the yield.
