Legality and Validity
PUBLIC LEGAL NOTICE
The Indian Board of Alternative Medicines is duly incorporated under Act XXVI of the Government of West Bengal based on the Central Government of India Act XXI of 1860 and the Literary and Scientific Institutions Act of 1854. This Act is applicable to the advancement and promotion of alternative and complementary medical sciences in India.
The Indian Board of Alternative Medicines is a Government registered institution established for the purpose of promotion and propagation of various streams of complementary and alternative medicine not only in India but throughout the world by conducting several activities such as publication of books, magazines, brochures, reports; organizing symposiums, workshops and International conferences; conducting charitable clinics; running regular and distance courses since 1991.
Legality, Validity & Utility of the training courses, practice and research in the field of Alternative Systems of Medicines are in strict conformity with the Constitution of India as per Article 19(1)g and the Laws of the Land.
Successful and trained students of the Board can practice and profess the various systems of Alternative Medicines as per the Rules and Regulation of the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines.
Registration from Medical Council of India is not required to practice the alternative systems of medicines as per their letter No.MCI-34(1) / 96-Med. / 10984 addressed to the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines.
A writ petition was filed by the Indian Board of Alternative Medicine in 1996 to recognize the systems of alternative medicine and the courses conducted by the Indian Board of Alternative Medicine as well to protect the rights of practitioners of alternative medicine. The Hon’ble High Court at Calcutta has been pleased to pass an order of status quo in this matter. The respondents in this case are the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of West Bengal and Govt. of India, Medical Council of India, Ministry of Home Affairs, etc. Hence the matter is subjudice and any comment on the matter may lead to confusion and complication.
However some persons/institutions having vested interest are creating not only confusion in the minds of our existing/prospective students and practitioners, but also damaging, defaming, and deteriorating the reputation of IBAM. Such acts of persons/institutions are derogatory in the eye of law especially in consideration with the Hon’ble High Court of Calcutta’s Status Quo Order about the functioning of IBAM wherein the Government of West Bengal, Medical Council of India (MCI), Health and Family Welfare Department and the Home Affairs Department of Government of India are impleaded as respondents.
In view of above mentioned order in force, persons or institutions are warned not to make any defamatory, detrimental or derogatory remarks through any means, failing which the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines will have no other alternative efficacious remedy but to take appropriate legal action against such acts without further serving any notice to them.
