The draft bill provides for constitution of a national commission with three autonomous boards entrusted to conduct overall education of homoeopathy
The Union Cabinet approved the draft for National Commission for Homeopathy Bill, 2018, on Friday which seeks to replace the existing regulator i.e. the Central Council of Homoeopathy, with a new body to ensure transparency and accountability.
“The draft bill provides for constitution of a national commission with three autonomous boards entrusted for conducting the overall education of homoeopathy by Homoeopathy Education Board”, an official statement said.
The board of assessment and rating to assess and grant permission to educational institutions of Homoeopathy and Board of ethics and registration of practitioners of Homoeopathy to maintain National Register and ethical issues relating to practice are under the National Commission for Homoeopathy, it said.
“It also proposes a common entrance exam and an exit exam which all graduates will have to clear to get practicing licenses. Further, a teacher’s eligibility test has been proposed to assess the standard of teachers before appointment and promotions,” it said. The CCH had been superseded by a board of governors through an ordinance and subsequent amendment of Act, the statement added.
