After MCI, Councils for Ayurveda, Homeopathy to be scrapped

New Delhi : Soon after suggesting the scrapping of the apex medical regulator for allopathy, the Medical Council of India, and replacing it with the proposed National Medical Commission, the Niti Aayog is now reported to have shifted its focus to the functioning of the regulators of the Indian System of Medicine.

A report in Economic Times, states that in line with the decision made with the MCI, the NITI Ayog has now suggested scrapping of two more institutions — the Central Council of Homeopathy (CCH) and the Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM).

“Like the Medical Council of India, even these two statutory bodies have outlived their utility. Besides, they continue to unnecessarily complicate things because of stringent regulations, which makes it difficult to impart quality education in homeopathy and Ayurveda,” the official informed ET on the condition of anonymity.

Similar to the process that was carried in context of the Medical Council of India, the Niti Ayog is now working on two separate bills  that would suggest the scrapping and replacement of the two statutory bodies under the health ministry, which govern higher education in homeopathy and Indian systems of medicine including Ayurveda.

It is reported that while the Aayog has completed the process of stakeholder consultation with respect to the two bills and it may soon bring  it out in the public domain for public opinion, before being put before the cabinet for approval.

Central Council of Indian Medicine, established in 1971 monitors the education as well as registration of practitioners in the fields of Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani, while the Central Council of Homeopathy looks at the homeopathy education and regulation In the country.

  1. What is there to regulate in AYUSH . All these courses copy all the subjects taught in modern medical courses. These fellows practice only concepts of mordren medicine . Dr venkataraman subryamanam the noble lauret has said there nothing in homeopathy drugs and heis sceptical about other systems also. Neeti ayog must be convinced about the efficacy of these methods scientifically . If there is no scientific proof ALL these corses should be scrapped . The money spent on these the so called system should be spent on education, portable water , nutrion , environment . Some of these aysh preparation contain toxic metals including lead , mercury ,arsenic etc . Consuming these preparation may not have immediate effect . These wil cause kidney , liver , bone marrow damage . Scrapping these courses will be a great service to future children of this country. There is no even one authentic scientific publication from these system except paper cuttings . These fellows propagate shamelessly , big liers.Members pl develop some scientific knowldge. Shave the public from these QUACKS of highest order

  2. With all due respect, I see that your inability to treat certain diseases which are easily treated in Indian system of Medicine with your so called allophatic drug is compelling you to post such comments. You talk about metal components of herbal drug and there toxicity, can you list out allophatic medicine which doesn\’t have negative effect on liver. Do you know which medicine does allophatic doctors prescribe along with akt drug?

    I feel pity about you and about your thoughts and also for those who support it. As goes an adage dogs work is to bark on the shining Sun, but the Sun doesn\’t loses its efficiancy because of that. This example seems to be perfect here.

  3. You cal some as dog because he has a professional openion. You r all donkeys because you have no brains atleast dogs have brilliant brains and intelegent , faithful . Which disease you can treat easily by ayush . You r liar infact all of are shameless liars. Ayush has no scientific basis

  4. Which standard t b of medicine prescribe ayush medicine along with modern medicine forget about individual practice .AKT has side effects we know to monitor not by ayush drugs Ayush thrives on ignorance of public ,politicians u r all copy cats prove one scientic proof don\’t try to fool public .pple say Ayurvedic massage cures DM any questions SIR . SHAME
