  1. WHEN The validity of the so called is not proved what is the validity of the exit exam . Sheer hypocrisy and sel destruction of the health of nation inthe name of indian system of medicine . There is only one physiology and one system of medicine i e modren system of medicine wrongl labelled as allopathy . All others are duplicates ??

  2. Given the degree of graft probably combining the two into one body is fine. However, how do we ensure that the new body is not bent.

  3. Why not english medicine is reformed to NMC? Credit may be due to corrupution exist in modi government also.
