IMA doctors against Clinical Establishment Bill

Members of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) today voiced their opposition to the proposed Clinical Establishment Bill at the General House meeting held at IMA House in Ludhiana on Sunday. The Bill has been approved by the Union Cabinet and is to be presented in the Parliament for debate and approval. After detailed deliberations, the members rejected the Bill outright as it “violated the dignity of the profession”. IMA president Dr Narotam Diwan said: “The National Council, which is proposed to be the governing body, will be composed of quasi-literate persons drawn from Unani, Siddha, Nursing and Paramedical sections of the profession. Of the total 18 members of the National Council, only two will be medical graduates. If passed, this Bill will open the doors for every unqualified person to get registered in the guise of Yoga, Unani, Siddha, Nursing and Pharmacy branches.”
