3 years jail, Rs 20,000 fine if AYUSH practioners practice Allopathy

3 years jail, Rs 20,000 fine if AYUSH practioners practice Allopathy

Trouble seems to be mounting for practitioners of Indian Systems of Medicine (AYUSH), including BUMS, BAMS, BIMS, BHMS practitioners who were earlier practicing allopathy. After the recent high court judgement clearly specifying that such practitioners cannot practice allopathy, the Delhi Medical Council taking cognizance of the order, has issued an advertisement in a newspaper reiterating the same.

Referring the judgement that came out on 8th April, 2016, DMC has noted that only persons who possess any of the recognized medical qualification as per First, Second or Third Schedule to the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 and registered with the Delhi Medical Council is entitled to practice in modern scientific system of medicine (allopathy) in the NCT of Delhi.Moreover, the advt states that qualification of BAMS, BIMS, BUMS, Ayurvedic/Unani/ Siddha or Homeopathy are not recognized medical qualification as per the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956, hence, holder of such qualifications are not entitled to practice modern scientific system of medicine (allopathy).

Any person practicing modern scientific system of medicine (Allopathy) in contravention of the above will render himself liable to punitive action, inter-alia, under Section 27 of The Delhi Medical Council Act, 1997, which is reproduced as under:-

Section 27. False assumption of Medical Practitioner or Practitioner under this Act to be an offence: Any person who falsely assumes that he is a medical practitioner or practitioner as defined in Clause (7) of Section 2 and practices the modern scientific system of medicine, shall be punishable with rigorous imprisonment which may extend up to three years of with fine which may extend up to Rs. 20,000/-or with both.

Speaking to Medical Dialogues Team, Dr Arun Gupta, President, Delhi Medical Council said, ” Delhi Medical council as a constitutional body, has an obligation to see and check that those who are not qualified in the field of allopathy, should not be allowed to practice the same. I rather urge to all my colleagues from other pathies to restrict to their own pathy and not to demean their own field by indulge in cross pathies. “

  1. Allopathy drs practice Ayurveda heavily…should be imprisoned for ten years

  2. Good report to the concerned authorities take action. First prove that what u use fits into the definition of a drug where they are validated and what is their physiological and pharmacological action.

  3. I would like to request all to not get personal on this post. This discussion board is based on supreme court judgment and this judgement has been passed following expert faculty consultation. If you step back and think, shouldn\’t we all practice the medical entity we have been trained in rather than trying to catch up with assumptions and practical issues like vacancies ,poverty and service coverage.
    If AYUSH doctors provide services and people accept it then its those people\’s fate. We have to all agree that allopathic medicine is based on very strong evidence based medicine where millions are spend on reseraches and trials. To be able to practice medicine we have to go through a proper training and legally licensed to practice this entity. AYUSH may be able to produce good results and treat people but idea is not to botch up your service to allopathy just because you have some knowledge about the subject. we should respect the supreme court judgment and abide by law rather trying to pull each others strings. Similarly allopathic doctors are not trained to practice herbal medicines and again if they practice it its people\’s fate but on a wider scale allopathic doctors don\’t practice any other entity.Minor variations are very common in any community.

  4. Exactly what I am saying. Let the discussion be limited to whether AYUSH doctors should be fined or jailed or suspended for practicing allopathy medicines. Like I have already said, I am welcoming the move. Let us keep the discussions only on this topic. We AYUSH doctors DO NOT want any opinions or reviews regarding our medicines from a Non-AYUSH doctor who hardly knows anything about our science or the medicines we use since nobody here made any comment about any system of medicine.
    In fact it is ALLOPATHY medicines which keep getting banned time and again and not herbal medicines.
    Herbal medicines have ALWAYS stood the test of time

    Mr CY Reddy before making any more stupid comments and as a senior, being a disgrace to your faculty, go through this link. It is easy to write your opinions regarding medicines you have zero idea about. Maybe you should continue prescribing medicines that your medical rep gives you (and you have no idea about) and taking cuts – which I am sure you have been doing all these 40 years

    Hope you get well soon!

  5. Read properly it is combination of drugs banned I am aware of it. Where dou get the validity for the so called herbal preparation . Every one bluffing pple including drug companies . It is cheating . Which disease use ur herbal preparation. U r a disgrace to whole of humanity

  6. I welcome the move provided the same rule is applicable to Non-AYUSH doctors too. AYUSH doctors cannot practice allopathy medicine. Fair enough. But I have seen many Non-AYUSH doctors prescribe herbal supplements, Yoga etc.? They can do whatever they want? Why this double standards? And Dr CY Reddy, mind your words before commenting. Who the hell are you to call AYUSH medicines bogus? What do you know about AYUSH medicines and who has given you the authority to comment unnecessarily? Do not wag your tongue on things you do not know about. Keep prescribing steroids. One day you or one of your family members will suffer from a disease for which there will be NO cure in allopathy and you will be forced to take AYUSH medicine. Such a day will come. Its a curse. Wait and watch. It will surely treat your arrogance.

  7. Name on disease you can cure .dont bother I can my pts . Tel one disease you r suppose to cured . Don\’t try to bluff me.

  8. Tell one scientifically proved product of ayush for any condition except paper cutting there is nothing in ayush . It is ASH

  9. Now that you claim to be this ethical doctor who knows everything about AYUSH medicines, google search \’banned allopathy medicines\’ and tell me if you have the GUTS to admit that you have never prescribed (or you are not prescribing) even a single drug mentioned in the banned list. Do you have the guts? Also, can you claim that NO allopathy doctor is prescribing even a single drug mentioned in the banned list?
    You yourself have no idea about your medicines – which is banned and which is not, yet you have the cheeks to shamelessly pass casual comments on other system of medicine? Hilarious! One who cannot respect others deserves no respect, mind you. The discussion was about AYUSH doctors practicing allopathy medicines for which I am against too and let us just limit the discussion to the topic.

  10. That is scientific medicine to understand effect and side effects of medicine which is evolving and what is bad should be rejected. You have no understanding of your medicine and how can u prescribe which has no scientific basis. What is the effect of ayush products on various physiological organs u prove it first then talk otherwise SHUTup

  11. Hahahahaha.. In the name of scientific medicine and evolution, you are experimenting on poor patients??? If the medicines were to be banned later because of their harmful effects, didn\’t they know it during R&D and clinical trials? So what is the scientific basis? Keep practicing till patients die and then ban the drug and use another drug to experiment? SHAME ON YOU AND YOUR EXPERIMENTS WITH INNOCENT LIFE. Before pointing fingers at others, make sure your hands are clean. For making money you are prescribing BANNED drugs and you DO NOT HAVE THE GUTS TO SAY THAT YOU NEVER USED THOSE BANNED DRUGS DURING YOUR PRACTICE. SO NOW YOU SHUT YOUR FILTHY MOUTH.

  12. You have a filthy mouth that is why you call others likethat . Your words only tell what type of filthy person u r. It is u who make money by practsing modern medicine . It is a shame such idiots r practicing modern medicine . If u have shame stick on to your the so called system of medicine. Honour the honorable court judgement. It is shame pple who don\’t know even the basics of human physiology and pharmacology r talking of medicine . Shame on U idiot

    If you have been practicing these banned medicines for all these 40 years and are still prescribing these banned medicines (which I am sure you are), shame on you and your imaginary ethics.

  14. In my forty years of practice I hardly used steroids . Steroids are life saving drugs and should be used judiciously . I follow lot of ethics . It is ayush fellows who use steroids indiscriminately along with antibiotics and analgesics . They become very popular practioners and u blame modern medicine . It is u pple follow double standards what is there in herbal preparations no one knows including u . Yoga is a form of exercise why that hype I don\’t know . Don\’t show ur ignorance

  15. Now it is the right time to inject some steroid into your brain. Maybe you could still save whatever little is left of it.

  16. Since u r ayush fellow u have only ASH in ur brain

  17. Mind your words I know what iam talking prove the pharmacology of one ayush product scientifically as per modern pharmacology methods u can\’t even another thousand years what is the research in your AYUSH. Except ash there nothing in ayush . U pple don\’t believe in microbilogy and u talk of treating infectious diseases. Prove today what ur practsing don\’t bluff the public by ur ignorance

  18. Dr.reddy today you are free to write so much about other practioner, it seems you lost your practice bcas of ayush graduate so my advice to you is update yourself, so you will be more busy & less frustrate.

  19. I am not frustrated All ayush fellows r big liers and big copy cats big buffers to the publics .
