Homeopathy, ayurveda and unani doctors in Maharashtra could soon be able to practice allopathy and prescribe allopathic drugs after the state government said that it will be issuing an ordinance next month making such a practice legal provided the doctors manage to pass a one-year course which could make them competent to practice those branches of medicine other than what they have trained for.
