Near about 67 percent of homoeopaths [qualified] are practicing in rural areas of Maharashtra. They are all the first soldiers to fight diseases and various emergencies. They must have right to practice conventional medicine in emergencies. In rural areas 45 percent cases are emergencies. Homoeopathic medicines are so large in number that one can not store all of them.

This appears to be an overturn of a previous ruling

Ban to practice Allopathy by Traditional Doctors: Madras High Court...

Sathyalaya Ramakrishnan reporting from Chennai
Chennai, 17 February, (
The Madras High Court has ordered the practitioners of Indian system of medicines, such as Ayurveda, Unani and Siddha, should not practice allopath, and there is nothing wrong if police take action against those who attempt to practice it without valid qualifications.

Justice K K Sasidharan, refusing to restrain police from initiating criminal proceedings against Unani practitioners who prescribed allopathic medicines, said: "There is no dispute that Ayurveda, Siddha, Unanni, allopathy and homeopathic system of medicines have got their own history, heritage, advantages and importance...The problem would arise only when they attempt to practice the allopathic system of medicine without a degree and training".

Justice Sasidharan was passing orders on the writ petitions of K Abdul Muneer and Jalees Ahmed Siddiqi, who contended that the five-and half-year Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery Course comprised a six-month alopathy training, where they got enough training to treat emergency patients with allopathy medicines.

Claiming that the police harassed Unani practitioners who prescribed allopathy medicines and they wanted the court to restrain police from interfering with their work.

The Director of Medical and Rural Health Services(DPHS), however, filed a counter, saying the syllabus of Unani and MBBS is not similar and that persons who did not have MB BS qualification cannot be registered with the Indian Medical Council(IMC) Act. Unani practitioners' prescription under allopathy stream would amount to illegal practice and they are liable for legal action, he said.

Justice Sasidharan, said, "The training given to Unani practitioners is not for the purpose of practicing in allopathic medicine or to administer modern medicine". The judge also directed the police not to harass genuine traditional Indian medical practitioners.

Unani and ayurveda docs can conduct surgery: Madras HC A Subramani and Pushpa Narayan, TNN, Jul 30, 2010, 03.48am IST
CHENNAI: The Madras high court has said registered practitioners in siddha, ayurveda, homeopathy and unani are eligible to practise surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, anaesthesiology, ENT, ophthalmology, etc.

Justice F M Ibrahim Kalifulla, passing orders on a contempt of court petition filed by the Tamil Nadu Siddha Medical Graduates Association, also said penal action against such practitioners who dabbled in allopathy should be "dropped forthwith."

The ruling runs contrary to a recent order delivered by another judge on a petition filed by two unani practitioners who sought similar relief. In February this year, Justice K K Sasidharan had held that practitioners of Indian system of medicines should not practise allopathy, and that there was nothing wrong if police take action against those who attempt to practice allopathy without valid qualification.

While passing orders on Thursday, Justice Kalifulla took note of a June 29 circular of the government, which, citing section 17(3)B of the Indian Medicine Central Council Act 1970, said institutionally qualified practitioners of siddha, ayurveda, unani and homeopathy are eligible to practise the respective system with modern scientific medicine "including surgery and obstetrics and gynaecology, anaesthesiology, ENT, etc. based on the training and teaching."

The government's latest stand on the issue smacks of ambiguity while dealing with alternative systems of medicine which it seeks to promote even while claiming to check illegal practitioners. The recent crackdown had seen several traditional practioners being booked for prescribing allopathic drugs.
