New Delhi: Resident doctors of AIIMS Resident Doctors’ Association and Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association  (FORDA) delegates will meet the Parliamentary Standing Committee examining the NMC Bill on Tuesday.

The doctors had earlier gone on strike and shut down the out patient department (OPD) services in protest against various recommendations of the bill.  

 

The National Medical Commission Bill (NMC), tabled in the Parliament in December, was later sent to a Parliamentary Standing Committee, seeking to replace the Medical Commission of India (MCI) with another body. It also proposed to allow practioners of alternative medicines, such as homoeopathy and ayurveda to practise allopathy after completing a “bridge course”.

The resident doctors in Delhi and the Indian Medical Association (IMA) have opposed the bill saying it will “cripple” the functioning of medical professionals by making them answerable to bureaucrats and non-medical administrators.

In an invite issued to presidents of the AIIMS Resident Doctors’ Association and FORDA, institute additional director, Dinesh Singh, said, “The com mittee has decided to have interactions with all stakeholders and have the benefit of their views.”
