The Allahabad High Court has expressed its displeasure over medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh conducting Ayurveda and Unani courses without due recognition from Central Council for Indian Medicine (CCIM), despite an order passed in this regard five years ago.

On last Friday, Justice Sunil Ambawani asked the state Secretary (Ayurvedic and Unani medicine) to file an affidavit in this regard within three weeks, failing which the court would order that no admissions shall take place in the 10 medical colleges offering these courses for 2011-12 session.The order was passed on a contempt petition filed by Rajesh Kumar Srivastava.The petition alleged that although the court had on July 21, 2006 ordered that admissions be stopped in nine out of the 10 colleges, students were being admitted for the aforesaid courses at all the institutions.The court has fixed April 24 as the next date of hearing in the case.
