Lok Sabha Passes Bill Allowing Ayurveda, Homeopathy Doctors to Practice Allopathy
Jan 02, 2018, 06:23
Services in private hospitals are likely to be hit on Tuesday as the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has told the doctors to stop service for 12 hours protesting a Bill that seeks to replace the Medical Council of India (MCI) with a new body. Only up to 40 per cent seats in a private medical college can be regulated by the government. As per the information received, the state-run doctors across the city will be going on a strike beginning from January 2, 2018, and this decision has been taken to oppose the National Medical Commission Bill.
Clause 49 of the Bill calls for a joint sitting of the National Medical Commission, the Central Council of Homoeopathy and the Central Council of Indian Medicine at least once a year "to enhance the interface between homoeopathy, Indian Systems of Medicine and modern systems of medicine". However, only the emergency services in the hospitals will continue to function. Most hospital authorities said it would depend on the doctors whether to come to the hospital or not.
The Delhi Medical Association is supporting the IMA's protest and has called on private and corporate hospitals in the national capital to keep their OPD services closed. "The IMA headquarter hereby declares closure of all routine services for 12 hours from 6 AM to 6 PM tomorrow across the country", IMA national president Dr Ravi Wankhedkar said. This Bill is anti-poor, anti-people, non-representative, undemocratic and anti-federal in character.
The Central government on December 30 tabled a Bill in the Lok Sabha which stated that doctors pursuing studies in forms of alternate medicine, including ayurveda and homeopathy, may be allowed to practise allopathy after they have cleared a "bridge course". However, government sources said that the bill will help to stop the corruption and unethical practices in the medical education. "One per state will be represented in an advisory body called the Medical Advisory Council".
According to the draft bill, the commission will have government nominated chairman and members, and the board members will be selected by a search committee under the Cabinet Secretary.
No permission would be needed to add new seats or to start post-graduate courses, it says.
