 Nationwide Protest by Indian Medical Association (IMA)

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) members held a nationwide protest demanding the dissolution of the Medical Council of India (MCI) other regulations concerned with the medical education in the country.

They also opposed the decision of the Indian Government on implementation of the Bachelor of Rural Health Care(BRMC). They alleged that this procedure was unethical and would only promote quacks. The association has demanded the ministry to resolve their issues within 15days, or have threatened to go on strike.


IMA president Dr. Zora Singh said, "There are 1,000 doctors registered with IMA and we would counter the ministry's decision if our demands are not met. The Clinical Establishment Bill, 2010 contains some unfair and unacceptable provisions which are highly objectionable. The 'Stabilizing the patient' clause is a hindrance in the smooth functioning."
