Panels on homoeopathy, Indian system

MPs raise concern over the lack of research in these forms of medicine

Two Bills to set up national commissions for the Indian system of medicine and homoeopathy were passed by the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, with the government assuring the House that similar legislation for yoga and naturopathy would be brought as well.

The National Commission for Indian System of Medicine Bill, 2019 and the National Commission for Homoeopathy Bill, 2019 had been introduced in the Rajya Sabha in January 2019, after which they were sent to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health and Family Welfare.
