IMA to protest against NMC Bill”

India's Health Ministry has asked all federal government hospitals to take necessary steps to ensure that healthcare and emergency services not be affected by a strike call from the Indian Medical Association (IMA) against new medical law. The striking doctors believe that the decision to replace the Medical Council of India with a new body will "cripple" the industry.

The strike shall be in effect from 6:00 am onwards on the proposed date until 6:00 pm, and as per the protest, this day will be observed as a black day.

It has also proposed that specific educational modules or programmes for developing bridges across the various systems of medicine and promotion of medical pluralism, can be done with the approval of all the members present in the joint sitting. "A bill to regulate the medical education and medical practice without the concurrence of the medical profession will be a disaster", said a statement from the association. The strike is called by the Indian Medical Association (IMA).

After the new bill, private colleges will no longer need permission to increase number of seats in undergraduate and postgraduate seats as they would be able do that on their own.

Bill tabled in the Lok Sabha is anti-people and anti-patient, said Roy Abraham Kallivayalil, secretary general of the World Psychiatric Association. Certain provisions of the NMC like allowing practitioners of Indian medicine like Ayurveda and Homeopathy to practice Allopathy after completing a bridge course. Over 40,000 doctors were participating in the strike in Maharashtra, while reports of the strike and protests were coming in from across the country.

This Bill is anti-poor, anti-people and it makes the system prone to corruption. Senior doctors from IMA are protesting another proposal of NMC which allows unrestricted fee in 60 per cent of medical seats in private medical colleges. A 25-member commission will replace the elected MCI, the Bill says.
