GULBURGA .SEP.16: Dr
.Ramjee Singh, President of the Central Council
of Homoeopathy, has said that the Health Ministry
and the council have initiated steps to standardize
Homoeopathy education and improve infrastructure
in Homoeopathic colleges across the country.
the 2013-14 academic year of HKE’S Homoeopathic
Medical College and Hospital Dr. Ramjee Singh
said that the Health Ministry wanted the accreditation
of Homoeopathic colleges made stricter and permit
admission only if the colleges fully complied
with all the norms laid down by the council. Deviation
or violation of even one per cent would not be
tolerated, he said.
Union government gave a very short notice to the
council for inspecting all the 186 Homoeopathy
colleges in the country and permitting only those
which ensured 100 per cent compliance with norms.
“Quick inspection of colleges, covering
only two aspects, including equipment availability
and teaching faculty, revealed that in 102 colleges,
the extent of deficiency was more than 25 per
cent. I told the Health Ministry officials that
we will have to disallow the colleges to admit
students to homoeopathy courses this year too,
if we insist on strict adherence to all norms,”
Health Ministry, after a lengthy deliberation,
agreed to postpone the implementation of the rule
of strict adherence till next academic year. The
council had been asked to inspect all the colleges
once again from December 31 and submit a report
on the conditions prevailing to the Health Ministry,
which would later decide whether to continue or
withhold the accreditation and whether to allow
colleges to admit students from next academic
year or not.
Rao principal of the College welcomed the gathering.
Dr.Arun Bhasme, Dr.B.T.Rudresh, President, Central
Council of Homoeopathy, principals of different
Homeopathic medical colleges of Karnataka participated
