Bengaluru: Doctor's strike to hit outpatient services in govt, pvt hospitals


However, the emergency services have not been affected.

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 association, the country's professional body of doctors, is at the forefront of the protest against the draft bill arguing that it will seriously impede the democratic functioning of the profession.

Dr. Kallivayalil, also a former vice president of the Indian Medical Association, said the Bill would be disastrous for the country's public health sector. "Talks are on. We have heard them and also presented our views".

Bill, which was tabled at the Indian parliament last week, is likely to come up for discussion on Tuesday.




While doctors in government hospitals will continue their services, they will observe a "Black Day" by wearing a black arm band as their way of participating in the strike. The strike is called by the Indian Medical Association (IMA).

Condemning the NMC Bill of 2017 Tandon also said: "This is basically not the National Medical Commission but a local medical commission".

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. "The lateral entry of non-MBBS doctors into the practice of modern medicine will gradually diminish the knowledge and significance of traditional medicine", said Chairman of National Medical Students Action Committee, IMA, Dr, Shiv Joshi in a statement.

The bill also allows private colleges to decide fee for 60 per cent of the seats; it is 15 per cent now.

The members of IMA describe the bill as "anti-people and anti-patient" and that it will open "floodgates of corruption". For instance, colleges will be allowed to start post-graduate courses and increase intake of students all on their own - without seeking permission from the NMC.
