Homoeopathy doctors cannot practice Allopathy: High Court stay Government Order

Homoeopathy doctors cannot practice Allopathy: High Court stay Government Order

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court stayed the Maharashtra Medical Education and Drugs department’s notification that allowed homeopathic doctors to practice modern medicine.

The state High Court came up with its stay decision after the Indian Medical Council (IMA) opposed the notification and approached the court in the said matter.

This notification issued on September 27, 2017, was challenged by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) through their lawyer S U Kamdar.

A bench of Justice Shantanu Kemkar and Justice Rajesh Ketkar questioned what about the risk to the patients.
“You may practise allopathy at your own risk, but what about the patients,” the bench asked the lawyer representing homeopaths. They futher raised concerns about the risk to the patient’s life in such a case.

Following the observations the court stayed the notification and posted the hearing after four weeks.

According to the notification, doctors who obtained the Licentiate of the Court of Examiners of Homeopathy (LCEH) degree from 1951-1982, and registered with the Maharashtra Medical Council (MMC) were allowed to practise modern, allopathic medicine. LCEH degree was recognised by Central Council of Homeopathy in 1951 and abolished by it in 1982. However such practitioners argued in the court that since they studied one subject of internal medicine as a part of their integrated course, they should be allowed to practice allopathy

The IMA had challenged the notification pointing out that the Indian Medical Council did not recognise such homeopathy degrees.

Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that Maharashtra Medical Education and Drugs department released the notification in favour of homeopathic doctors allowing them to practise modern medicine.

The notification stated that doctors who obtained the Licentiate of the Court of Examiners of Homeopathy (LCEH) degree from 1951-1982, can register with the Maharashtra Medical Council (MMC). The registration with the MMC implies that such practitioners will be allowed to practice allopathy/modern medicine.

    Govt. should rather think over other plan to boost homeopathy in health care delivery through Primary care aspect.

  5. I have quoted this several times dr Venkatakrihnan Ramakrishnan a noble lauret in chemistry clearly says there is no pharmacological ,chemical or biochemical evidence of moelecule in the so called homeopathy medicine or drugs ,what ever you call.when that is the case on what basis you cal yourself doctors and treat patients ?You are bunkam fellows spreading false hood and propagating against modren medicine which you want practice by back door entry .infact the govt should ban these courses in the interest of public wnt to propagate quackery and cheating public.

  6. Have you seen Homoeopathy medicines cure corn and warts?? If not there are thousands such patients… forget other diseases. How can it cure without a molecule in it…is the subject of research for so called modern medicine. Just observe with unbiased view.

  7. Mr C Y Reddy you need to have basic knowledge of Homeopathy , which was discovered by a qualified Allopath and only system of medicine which understand the patient language and suffering , and each of its drug are proved on healthy human beings, its chemistry still to be understood by chemists, Apples used to fall down even before Newton invented Gravitational theory.

  8. Thank judiciary …Nikalne sarkaro ki nikkami soch ko dharta dilane ke liye
