Are 57% ‘doctors’ quacks? Govt says no, then yes
Are a majority of those practising allopathy in India quacks? The government said no, it now says yes. A 2016 WHO report on the health workforce in India had shocked everybody by stating that 57.3% of those practising allopathic medicine did not have any medical qualification. Then Union health minister JP Nadda had rubbished the report as “erroneous” in January 2018 while responding to a question in the Lok Sabha. But the data has now gained official approval, with the same health ministry using it to argue the case for allowing community health practitioners (CHPs) in the National Medical Commission Act just notified.
The FAQ on the Bill (as it then was) issued by PIB on August 6 said 57.3% of personnel currently practising allopathic medicine do not have any medical qualification. According to the WHO report based on the 2001 Census, barely 20% of those who practised medicine in rural India had any medical qualification. It also estimated that 31% of those who claimed to be allopathic practitioners were educated only up to Class 12.

The figure 57% is surely wrong.

What are students doing in an exam hall? They are just copying without studying. Because they think that studying is a big crime so just catch hold of a scholar. Later these copycats pay bribe to the govt. employees and get a high pay job. Do you know what will be the outcome of this? This is why there is such a high difference between America and India or even Pakistan.

The report appears misleading or is the health ministry making a misleading statement? It doesn’t speak about the status of Ayurveda degree and post doctorates in this scenario? Has the Govt not consider them as doctors and classified them as “quacks”?

One of these days the middle East countries will chuck out the Indian doctors the same way as the Pakistani doctors a couple of days back.

Gulf countries are surviving because of asian skilled and unskilled workers and among them Indians are majority. Same with doctors. Qualified Indian doctors are well respected everywhere except in India. If they disqualify them, there healthcare will be disrupted. Bet, they don''t want that.

if you got admission in medical college by paying 1crore rupees and neet score. is just 120 then what can we expect. The present Govt is also doing nothing to check this menance. Govt should think and no admission should be given to such students. qualifying marks should be 400 at least for all categories.

Even the qualified doctors are quacks. Take a look at states where 70% reservation is practiced. They cannot clear NEET exams. Just imagine the quality of doctors they have produced these many years.

Even MBBS doctors that you go to: assess how much money they can get out you before they detect what's wrong with you? They will tell you what's wrong with your health depending on their assessment of your financial situation.
