Indian Medicine Doctors can practice Allopathy


      CHENNAI.FEB.12:
The police cannot interfere with doctors qualified to practice Siddha or Ayurveda or Homeopathy or Unani, when they prescribed allopathy treatment, the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court has ruled again. Reiterating the orders passed last year by a division bench on similar issues, Justice K.Chandru said that no proceedings could be initiated against any of those registered practitioners, who were eligible to practice, irrespective of the respective system, also with modern scientific medicine, including surgery, gynaecology, obstetrics, ENT, ophthalmology, etc.       

The judge was disposing of a batch of writ petitions, referring to judgments of the Supreme Court, the judge said that leaving the choice to the policemen to deal with doctors who were actually having qualified medical degrees, would be undesirable and would amount to disservice to the public.
