Seeking complete ban on private practice of all government doctors in Jammu and Kashmir, Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) today said that banning private practice of Heads of Departments (HOD’s) and allowing it for all other doctors is illogical.

President DAK Dr Nisar ul Hassan in a statement said that selective ban on private practice of doctors makes no sense. 

"Refraining only HOD’s from private practice won’t help. There has to be a blanket ban on the practice of all doctors. It is ironical that doctors who are appointed full time for public hospitals are allowed to run their private clinics. Private practice has eaten away government hospitals and is the root cause of healthcare mess. Patient care is the greatest casualty because of dual practice of doctors.
