Jammu and Kashmir Health Department to Promote Indian System of Medicines

Chowdhary Lal Singh, health minister of Jammu and Kashmir, a state in northern India, has said that the health department is keen to promote Indian System of Medicines (ISM) in the state. The ISM consists of Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and therapies such as Yoga and Naturopathy.

"ISM is our heritage and every effort shall be made to modernize the health institutions providing this system of treatment with adequate staff and infrastructure so as to provide the alternative choice of treatment to the people" the Minister said at a function organised by Directorate of ISM.

Lal Singh asked the ISM authorities to ensure that no drug sub-outlets are operative on proxy basis anywhere in the state and ordered that drug shops should be run only with license issued by competent authority of the organisation.

"It is the matter of healthcare and we have to ensure that drugs are only sold by trained pharmacists having requisite certificates and license from the recognized organization. Spurious drugs and proxy drug outlets will be seized and guilty persons booked under the law", he said.
