New Delhi: The Indian Medical association (IMA) on Tuesday gave a call to all doctors practicing modern medicine to withdraw non-essential and non-C-19 services on December 11 in protest against a Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM) notification which authorises post-graduate practitioners in specified streams of Ayurveda to be trained to perform general surgical procedures.

Emergency services will function along with ICUs and CCUs but no elective surgical case will be posted, the doctors’ body said.

Stating that the notification by the Central Council of Indian Medicine to allow the legal practice of surgeries by Ayurveda practitioners. it is also stated that the formation of four committees by Niti Aayog for the integration of all systems of medicine will only lead to “mixopathy”, the IMA demanded an immediate withdrawal of both.
