Maha to set up 1,500 health centres with BAMS docs: Official

Mumbai: The Maharashtra government will set up 1,500 new sub-health centers across the state and appoint doctors with Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) degrees to run them, Chief Secretary Sumit Mullick said today.

He said that chief executive officers of Zilla Parishads had been authorized to appoint these doctors.

Speaking after holding a review meeting of departments such as Health, Women and Child Development and Tribal Development in Mantralaya today, he said that special attention would be given to the state’s 16 tribal-dominated districts.

He informed that a CT (computed tomography) scan machine had been approved for Nandurbar while Nutritional Rehabilitation Centres (NRC) would be set up at Karjat in Raigad, Churani and Chikhaldara in Amravati.

Mullick asked officials to seek aid from the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds of corporates to start a central kitchen in Melghat to provide nutritional food to people there.

  1. As of now Maharashtra has more than 45 BAMS colleges and most of them are belongs to renowned politicians. As declared and approved by the parliamentary standing committee on the recommendations on NMC bill it is said that the health is a subject matter to state and it is up to the state govt to whom to delegate what. On this very purpose to run these colleges and to ruin the career of student govt now decided to include BAMS bachelor in the health services. My question on this if the govt feels it necessary that these graduates are important organ of the health system then why it doesn\’t bring out a bill or pass NMC bill to practice them Allopathy and to finish matter for all. But the Govt is very much subjugated to IMA and IMA wants to keep BAMS\’s in derogation to them. What a Bullshit is this.

  2. If they have to practice allopathy, then why we have these colleges in the first place. Convert them to MBBS colleges. Matter solved.
