Bhopal: Indian medicine practitioners would soon be allowed to prescribe 68 allopathic medicines in emergencies, according to the Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM) president Dr Ved Prakash Tyagi.
Dr Tyagi has, however, clarified that for the moment the relaxation is only for practitioners working in rural areas under the national rural health mission (NRHM).
CCIM is the regulatory body that frames syllabi and recommends affiliation to colleges teaching Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy. [Source: ToI]
