Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh government today ruled out giving permission to Ayurvedic doctors to practise allopathy and give medicines and treatment to patients like MBBS doctors.
"The government cannot allow Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) doctors to do the work of MBBS doctors and provide allopathic treatment. It`s not possible... If such a thing is done, there will be no need for MBBS studies," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Mohammad Azam Khan said in the state Assembly.
He was replying to an adjournment notice given by some Congress members who asked the government to grant permission to BAMS doctors to provide allopathic treatment like MBBS doctors.
Khan, however, said the government could consider the matter if associations of BAMS and MBBS doctors arrived at any conclusion on this issue and informed the authorities.
