Ayurveda candidates cannot practice Allopathy: MCI

Share this:

The BAMS Graduates Association of India has condemned the recent release by the Medical Council of India which stated that candidates who have registered for Ayurveda have no right to practice Allopathy.

Suhas Joshi, President of the BGA stated “BAMS graduates are legally allowed to practice in Mahasashtra. In the 1999 amendment in Food and Drug Act of 1945, individual states were asked to frame their own laws to decide upon whether BAMS graduates can practice in alloapthy or not. Maharashtra government passed an order regarding the same. Other states should also follow the same.” He added, “Whenever there is reference to bogus doctors or quacks, Ayurvedic doctors are cited as examples. Organisations like MCI are responsible for this. BAMS graduates get training in allopathy medical sciences also including pharmacology. This fact is always ignored.”

The members pointed out that legal action may be taken if the Medical Council of India doesn’t respond.

A very unhappy . Subhash Ranade, President of International Ayurveda Academy, said, “The ancient science Ayurveda is being given step-motherly treatment by the government. The recently-formulated National Council for Human Resources in Health does not have any representative of AYUSH (Department of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy ). This is really unjust.”

    BAMS Ayurvedic doctors in their professional courses were taught Ayurveda with modern medicines. Some BAMS doctors have good knowledge about Allopathy too. Currently BAMS doctors are encouraged to use modern medical science for diagnosing the health condition only and not treating.

    Most BAMS Ayurvedic doctors are found practising modern medicines in most of the parts of India. Practising modern medicine for Ayurvedic doctors in modern day has always been a controversial issue in India.

    As far as medical professional practice is concerned in India, currently no ayurvedic practitioner can successful without support of modern science including usage of emergency drugs and diagnostics methods. It is also true that no allopathic practitioner can be successful without using natural resources and healthy eating’s and life style measures.

    Government should be carefully responsible before giving registration to health care practitioners and permitting them with their medico-legal rights to open their clinics and do professional practices.

    As far as Surgery is concerned, more strict regulations are necessary and should never be allowed without proper qualification and expertise. The “malpractices of doctors” should be controlled with tough hand, effective “Lokpal” and severe penalty.

    The public illness is managed by doctors and the “doctors illness” should be managed by police.

    Ayurveda doctors are NOT allowed to practise allopathy?

    Why ? Answer is here –
    1. Their syllabus does not include Allopathic medicine (they only read it as an extra curricular activity)
    Gazette notified copy of syllabus is attached. Slide 40
    2. Judiciary had made it clearly evidenced it in may judgements
    See the slides 25 to 28. After which there is no suspicion.
    All previous notiifcation and orders before this were quashed
    3. CCIM has also accepted these facts (See slide 22)
