IMA against AYUSH Doctors

The Indian Medical Association will not allow ayurveda and AYUSH doctors to practice allopathy, said Indian Medical Association (IMA) president Dr H L Krishne Gowda.

He claimed ayurveda practitioners had sought permission to prescribe allopathic medicines during emergency cases.
The members of IMA stressed that Section 15 of 1956 Act (Indian Medical Council Act) and section 17 of 1970 Act, says, “A professional maybe held liable for negligence on the ground that he did not possess the requisite skill which he professes to have. Thus, a doctor who has qualification in ayurveda, unani or homeopathy will be liable if he prescribes allopathic treatment.”

The SC defined a quack as, “A quack is a person who doesn’t have knowledge of a particular system of medicine, but practices that system.” The IMA said the government should not allow any such cross practice. source:http://newindianexpress.com/cities/bangalore/article589715.ece
