Doctor's strike observes today against National Commission Bill

Private doctors in Gurgaon held a meeting in Huda Gymkhana club on December 15 to discuss the new Bill

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has directed the panel to file its report before the Budget session.

The IMA claimed that it has the support of over 25,000 doctors from the government and private sector as well as 10,000 medical students in the state. "The Bill is anti-poor, anti-people, non-representative and undemocratic", said IMA, TS chapter president, Dr. T Narasinga Reddy.

The former president of IMA said Dr K K Aggarwal also slammed the proposed bill.

Doctors in Kerala today went on a strike to protest the Centre's proposed National Medical Commission Bill, causing enormous hardship to those visiting hospitals across the state. "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 bill also allows private colleges to decide fee for 60 per cent of the seats; it is 15 per cent now.

The bridge course will be decided upon at a meeting between the proposed National Medical Commission, the Central Council of Homoeopathy and the Central Council of Indian Medicine. "The new bill will increase corruption and no one will be afraid of private medical colleges".

"The joint sitting, may, by an affirmative vote of all members present and voting, decide on approving specific bridge course that may be introduced for the practitioners of Homeopathy and of Indian Systems of Medicine to enable them to prescribe such modern medicine at such level as may be prescribed", according to the Bill. Dr Kumar said a six-month bridge course for AYUSH professionals can not be equated to four years of medical education. The doctors are opposing this new NMC bill, said that the passing of this bill will be the black day in the medical history.

Dr Veeranna said the appointment of members to the commission is not by election, but rather by nomination by the Union government.

Some other contentions with the bill include representation of just five states at any given point in time in the NMC, bringing the state medical councils under the NMC.
