Doctors in Kerala to join nationwide strike against bill today”

However, operation theatres, casualty and other emergency services will continue.

Supporting the fraternity, private hospitals also kept their outpatient departments closed.

The NMC Bill 2017 will replace the Medical Council of India (MCI), that has been in controversy over several allegations of corruption. "So, our OPD services will go on as per routine but we are wearing a black band in protest".

"It removes all the regulations before starting a medical college". The protest was staged by students from both private and government medical institutions.

It has also proposed that specific educational modules or programmes for developing bridges across the various systems of medicine and promotion of medical pluralism, can be done with the approval of all the members present in the joint sitting.

Bill, which was tabled at the Indian parliament last week, is likely to come up for discussion on Tuesday.

Tandon also said: "The current MCI is a democratically elected body where we have almost 80 percent elected members and 20 percent nominated by the government".

Tandon, meanwhile, said: "The government through this Bill, is trying to bring in two categories in medical education - the urban sector and the rural sector".

The former president of IMA Dr KK Aggarwal had urged the government to redraft the Bill and rectify some of its provisions to protect the interest of the medical practitioners."The Bill takes away the voting right of every doctor in India to elect their medical council", he opined. Certain provisions of the NMC like allowing practitioners of Indian medicine like Ayurveda and Homeopathy to practice Allopathy after completing a bridge course.

The bill also allows private colleges to decide fee for 60 per cent of the seats; it is 15 per cent now. To clear one more exam after four years of graduation is a burden on the students, he said.

The implementation of the new bill of the government under National Commission proposal will strengthen the medical colleges.
