  • IMA strike: Hospital Services affect in Odisha

The bill is likely to come up for discussion in Parliament on Tuesday. Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has directed the panel to file its report before the Budget session.

The outpatient departments in private hospitals were closed in support of the strike called by the Indian Medical Association.

Dr Bhupendra Shah, president of the IMA Gujarat Branch said that in its present form, the NMC is a pro private management and pro-rich bill that will pave the way for widespread corruption. Tamil Nadu Government Doctor Association president Dr K Senthil said, "If the government allows 'crosspathy, then it must ensure that all these doctors work exclusively in government hospitals".

The strike is called by the Indian Medical Association (IMA).

At least 12 die in plane crash in Costa Rica
Two Costa Rican crew members and 10 foreigners were on board, the ministry said. According to Costa Rican authorities, 10 of those passengers were USA citizens.

Tandon also said: "The current MCI is a democratically elected body where we have almost 80 percent elected members and 20 percent nominated by the government".

The Bill provides for constitution of four autonomous boards for undergraduate and post-graduate education, assessment and accreditation of medical institutions and registration of practitioners under the National Medical Commission. The doctor's strike has held against the new proposal of National Commission Bill.

With doctors staying off duty, the protest against the new bill has left many patients in the lurch.

He said bringing AYUSH practitioners under NMC will spell doom for not only the modern medical profession but also the health of the public.

The Raiders have fired Jack Del Rio
The Raiders are believed to be on the verge of hiring Jon Gruden, their coach from 1998-2001, as Del Rio's replacement. They went just 2-6 on the road, unable to capitalize on a season in which they won their first two contests.

The IMA has strongly opposed the NMC bill, saying it will "cripple" the functioning of medical professionals by making them completely answerable to the bureaucracy and non-medical administrators.

Similarly in Karnataka, hundreds of private hospitals shut their OPDs to protest against the NMC Bill, 2017.

The commission will have a government-nominated chairman and members, and the board members will be selected by a search committee under the Cabinet Secretary, it says.
