The 2.77 lakh-strong Indian Medical Association is protesting the bill saying that it is anti-poor and anti-people.

The Indian Medical Association had called for suspending routine services today to protest against a bill that seeks to replace the Medical Council of India (MCI) with a new body. A medical practitioner from the city said that on the one hand the government is planning to come up with a bridge course to allow alternate medecine practitioners to prescribe allopathic medecine, while on the other it is introducing more examinations for MBBS doctors.

Supporting the fraternity, private hospitals also kept their outpatient departments closed.

Medicos, however, have chose to attend emergency cases and those admitted in hospitals.

He said the slogan for the medical community is 'No to NMC (National Medical Commission).

The terrorists first lobbed grenades and then began indiscriminate firing and entered the training centre in Awantipora. However, unconfirmed reports said one more militant was killed but bodies of only two have so far been recovered.

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.

Wankhedkar said: "Private medical colleges at present have a quota of 15 percent called the NRI quota, where the government has not fixed a fee". The bill is likely to be taken for discussion in the Lok Sabha on January 2.

The bill has provisions that would adversely affect the health sector and medical education in the country, he alleged. 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 Kumar said a six-month bridge course for AYUSH professionals can not be equated to four years of medical education.

The commission will have a government-nominated chairman and members, and the board members will be selected by a search committee under the Cabinet Secretary, it says.
