Gujarat HC seeks Written Arguments For License Renewal of Homeopathy Colleges
Ahmedabad: The Gujarat High Court has asked all opposing counsels to submit a two-page written submission of final arguments in support of granting or renewal of licences for several homoeopathy medical colleges in the state on Wednesday, 17th November 2021.
The appeals by the Medical Assessment And Rating Board of Homoeopathy, the authority responsible for issuance and renewal of licences to homoeopathy medical colleges, challenged the order of a single-judge HC bench, which held that the "deficiencies" pointed out by the central board to not grant recognition for the medical colleges were "non-existent".
Earlier adjudicated by a different division bench, the matters came up before the bench of Chief Justice Aravind Kumar and Justice Hemant Prachchhak that directed the counsels representing the central board and homoeopathy medical colleges to file two-pages of written arguments. Next hearing is scheduled on November 23rd, 2021, reports The Indian Express.
After certain deficiencies were found in some homeopathy colleges, including but not limited to the lack of infrastructure, the Gujarat High Court has become more stringent and has demanded written arguments in favour of renewal of licenses of the aforementioned colleges.
