BIMS, BUMS, BAMS reach Supreme court challenging crosspathy ban

Next Hearing on 8th August, 2016

New Delhi: Challenging the Delhi High Court decision of April 8th which clearly specified that BIMS, BUMS, BAMS, and other other practitioners of Indian Systems of Medicine cannot practice modern scientific system of medicine and prescribe allopathic medicines, National Integrated Medical Association and All India Indian Medicine Graduates Association are reported to have filed an appeal with the Supreme Court.

The appeal came in the wake of the Delhi high court decision that had struck the clause Section 2(h) of the Delhi Bharatiya Chikitsa Parishad Act, 1998 (DBCP Act) and the Notification No.28-5/2004-Ay. (MM) dated 19th May, 2004 of Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM) that on the basis whereof the practitioners of Indian System of Medicine were claiming to have a right to practice in the Allopathic System of Medicine.

During the partial hearing on 1st august, Arguments went on from the side of ISM practitioners, who are being represented by prominent lawyers of the country including Senior Advocates Harish Salve and Raju Ramachandran. The lawyer on behalf of ISM practitioners, that the history of surgery in the world, started with Sushruta who was a noted Ayurvedacharya.

Moreover it was argued that, many allopathic drugs including antibiotics are necessary part of treatment/surgeries, which the said practitioners are not being able to prescribe in the wake of the high court judgement in delhi

However, considering the current scenario of medical practise in mind the Chief Justice of India, hon’ble Justice TS Thakur, who is hearing the matter did not seem much convinced with the argument, even remarking.

“How many of you would go to an Ayurvedacharya for a surgery?”

The chief justice has indeed is reported to have shown a great surprise to the contention that ayurivedic practitioner perform surgeries in the country, and is reported to have asked the petitioners to furnish details of the same if this is so.

Next hearing is on coming monday

  1. Can any one tell me what the \’Modern Medicine \’is?

  2. India has a very lax guidelines in all government\’s machinery to allow all type of idiocy.

  3. These quacks are not imparted with the needed education in modern medicines. Moreover they are the most intolerant stuff if objected to their stupidities, which more often happens.
    They command more respect from the patients than the allo-physicians
    Whereas an MD(allo) is definitely more humble to the patients than an ordinary BAMS.
    Coming to their job, they never prescribe a single ayurved medicines. Their prescriptions are only allo-med.
    Reason being that they themselves don\’t believe on their studies(ayurveda), treatment & its process. Instead, for speedy recovery & fast and good result, they prescribe allo-med. And more use of steroids.
    Authorities must act to this practice

  4. It\’s ur personal experience/opinion/regret to an individual,dont think it\’s benchmark to evaluate d system.
    Some allopathic drugs r required in general practice.
    Don\’t speak like it\’s ur right on d modern medicine.
    Be mature ur physician.

  5. I know that it hurts you, don\’t be pathetic. Do these people study allo-meds????
    You are endorsing that an LLb in corporate laws can defend your car accident case in the court of law?
    If you still say that he can, then these people should have set an example in their favour by hiring an LLb tax practitioner instead of those prominent lawyers to present their case in the supreme court..
    Enough has been pointed out.

    When a research is done on Ayurvedic Medicine with help of Ayurvedic scholars and a new drug is formed from an Ayurvedic formulation, the Ayurvedic scholars are of great help but not given due credit in publishing research.
    And a new name is given to the medicine and the same Ayurvedic graduate is denied to use the same medicine in whose development he is the main pillar.
    We don\’t deny usefulness of allopathic medicine but to name only this system as scientific is wrong.
    Ayurveda is most scientific system of Medicine and it\’s being proved with time.
    A lot of research is going on Ayurveda worldwide and it\’s not far away in future that we\’ll be happy to follow the system when it\’ll be imported from West because of our slave mentality.
    I\’ve a lot of patients coming to me for consultation for lifestyle problems. So why our learned chief justice of supreme court asked question from lawyer if he\’ll go to Ayurvedic doctors for treatment.
    He must have forgotten that a lot of people from the world even the heads of states go to Kerala for treatment.

  7. What the law says is you cannot practice crosspathy.When an Ayurvedic qualified Vaid prescribes Modern medicine (Layman term Allopathy) in which he is not trained and educated, it is nothing but quackery.If you are educated and trained to practice Ayurveda, then you should restrict to Ayurveda only.Why hundreds of graduates of alternative system of medicine ( Who donot get admissions in MBBS) start practicing Modern medicine after graduating.There should be strict law to punish these quacks.Otherwise there is no need for MBBS degree.

  8. There are three systems of medicine in India .Allopathy, Ayurveda, Homeopathy. The graduates from these streams are registered medical practitioners. Apart from these registered graduates if any one is practising medicine is called quack. In India Health is a state related issue while medical education is related to central government.Every state has right sto decide their own health policy. States like Maharashtra allowed BAMS graduates to practice integrated medicine since 1956. Till date nothing went wrong. Health system is functioning wel. If you are calling a registered medical practitioner a quack then you may land in trouble. You may have to face a defemation suite. So it is better you study the system first and then comment. Modern medicine is not your intellectual property. Can you specify your contribution towards modern medicine?Nothing! You people feel that BAMS graduates are hurdles for you to make money.

  9. Supreme court judgenwnt labelled rhem as quack or charlatan , not any of us. So if you are a wuack accept it. A quack cannor be a medical practitioner

  10. Matter yet to discuss in the Supreme Court. Case is between Delhi medical association and integrated practitioners of Delhi. Delhi Highcourt has given expatry judgement because no one has appeared in the court. Supreme Court admitted the SLP. Case belongs to Delhi state only. Other states don\’t have any relation with this. Have a recent knowledge at least. Way back Supreme Court admitted in Mukhtiyarchand case that Health is a subject related to state government. I think you should have some knowledge before passing any loose comment. It shows your frustration.

  11. Law of integrated practice exist in 13 state, hope soon it will implement in all over India.
    Give respect to it.
    Try to contribute something to country in r& d , apart from making money.

  12. Then u people first stop using herbal origin modern drugs.
    Over 40,% modern drugs r herbal origin.
    Around 5% r mineral origin.
    It\’s not about who is using what,its about d knowledge he\’s having.
    Allopathic drugs r not patent of IMA/MCI.
    tell us drugs which r invented by allopathic doctors.
    It\’s a Western skill they have mastered.
    Skill is not any dads property or it can be only acquired in MBBS course.
    Come out of d hysteria.

  13. Ur skeptical.
    Selfish motive to survive

  14. In this competitive era, even the best trained allopathy doctors at times fail to deliver appropriate treatment at the right time, these doctors trained in alternative medicine are putting the lives of innocent people at risk for their own vested interest, which is unfair, how much more the people of this country are supposed to tolerate ?

  15. Don\’t worry about the innocent people. Start your practice in rural India. Sacrifice the luxury. Forget the money and serve rural population. Are you capable to do it?

  16. Y should we not worry about people….
    Rural people do come to city and we serve…
    Patient should come to place Wer der is equipment …. equipment will not go to the patient…

  17. Rural people also deserve qualidied doctors and not quacks. It is governments duty to provide them with wuakufied doctors.

  18. Kindly don\’t misunderstand, the alternate medicine doctors are trained in their field of medicine, why do they want allopathy medicines to treat patients? How much are they aware of the actions of these medicines, there are so many cases of indiscriminate use of steroids which puts the patients in trouble, I do not see doctors of alternate medicine managing emergencies. It\’s not about Urban or rural India, every individual has the right to be treated by the best doctor, don\’t question about my capability, you don\’t even know who I am.Be logical in your argument.Dont show your frustration.

  19. For your knowledge let me tell you medicine doesn\’t mean only pharmacology. Ayurveda practioner are integrated medical practioners . Anotomy or physiology doesn\’t change with pathy. So about the other subjects too. In Maharashtra national 108 emergency services are managed by Ayurveda practitioners only. They saved thousands of lives. They are managing the icu\’s of many corporate hospitals too. You are most welcome to see all this. Interospect yourselve. I have seen many confused allopathic practitioners using three four antibiotics simply for the viral fever. Unnecessarily using steroid eye drops in compromised corneas. Many more to tell. Leave it for now. But never doubt about the copractitioner \’s ability and knowledge.

  20. You are saying that confused allopathic doctors are killing patients…nd u people by joining emergency services are saving life\’s…funny…

  21. I think it\’s your perception. I never said allopathy doctors are killing patients. At least read it carefully.

  22. The length of your argument just shows your frustration and nothing else. The alternative practitioners of medicine don\’t even know the difference between simple and grievous injury, you should see them fumble when they are questioned by the judges in MLC case in the court of law. Exactly, you are right, the allopathy practitioners make mistakes,they being trained and specialized make mistakes, the alternate practitioners of medicine can\’t be better than them, don\’t argue for the heck of it. You may have the best of the intention to do good to the people pertaining to health care, but that intention itself is not adequate you need to have appropriate knowledge and skills.I\’m not the sole caretaker of the health system in the country as a free citizen of independent India, I can voice out my opinion.

  23. I\’m not arguing. Trying to put few facts. If you really don\’t understand then better leave it. Why should I argue with you? There is a health system in this country who is capable to take care of every individual. You have a problem with your superiority complex. You can\’t digest the fact that other people are also equally good. At least feel proud that Indiai is amongst those countries who is having its own Medical Science..Ayurveda!
    We are never frustrated. I think it\’s your turn. And it\’s very true that every Indian citizen can voice out his opinion. So as I,m !

  24. Ayurveda is only adjunct …is is useful but it cannot replace allopathy….wat to be proud of it!?
    It actually decorated some peoples health ,I saw so many diabetics eating Ayurveda medicines stopping insulin or ohas ending up with complications due to uncontrolled sugars

  25. Do you have any knowledge about Ayurveda?

  26. Thanks for the facts. We are talking about equality, where did superiority come from, equality in terms of best health care to every individual.Exactly, you are right, there is a judiciary in this country to set things right, lets wait and watch.Thanks for your patience 🙂

  27. If you don\’t know about the curriculum then better you study it first. Go to any govt or govt aided Ayurved college and hospital in Maharashtra. Look at the infrastructure, departments , OT\’s, ICU\’s, If you are not aware of it then at least try to find it out. And hello pharmacology is a part of the syllabus. You are not the sole health care taker of whole Indian population. If you want to debate one to one about medicine , please visit any govt Ayurved medical college inMaharashtra. Try your luck! And really I am not interested who you are.

  28. You want to prove that Ayurveda is good only in Maharashtra…..

  29. Do you know anything about the Ayurveda?

  30. It\’s not true…even Ayurveda homeo have their role…the thing here is not about their practice it\’s about them using allopathic medicines
