Violating rules

In a blatant violation of the Medical Council of India (MCI) norms the doctors possessing degrees in Unani, Ayurvedic or Homeopathic system of medicines are practicing illegally Allopathic system in the Government hospitals and private clinics  of the valley at the cost of the heath of gullible patients. Even the chemists are prescribing drugs illegally to poor, uneducated patients, in rural areas, chemists are posing as doctors, thereby endangering patients life. A person working as sweeper, nursing orderly or a multipurpose worker etc is practicing medicine at chemists shop in their localities in the mornings and evenings.
 The Indian System of Medicine (ISM) doctors know little about the formula, mode of action and dosage of the allopathic medicines, so prescribing the same may prove disastrous for any patient any time. As per medical ethics, a medico has to strictly prescribe only those drugs in which he is holding valid degree and a registration, (a BUMS doctor cannot prescribe Allopathic drugs). Government must start, Jan Ausudhi drug stores (cheaper generic drug stores, but only those drugs should be kept available which are from reputed manufacturers and have undergone prior quality assurance check) at every Government health installation, (Inventory and dispensing must be inbuilt). There should be sufficient monitoring staff with specialized legal back up and discretionary powers at tehsil level, to check, whether good prescribing practices and good dispensing practices are followed, number of licenses granted to chemists must be rationalized, since there is already mushroom growth of outlets in every street and corner.
