To give greater impetus to the Indian Systems of Medicine (ISM) and Homeopathy, a parliamentary committee recommended a substantial increase in the representation of the states / TUs in the separate national commissions proposed for the Indian Systems of Medicine and Homeopathy to ensure the cooperative federalism between Center and states.
The panel recommended an increase in the representation of states / TUs from the six to 10 proposed in the National Commission for ISM and from five to 10 in the National Commission for Homeopathy. Two reports from the committee on the Bill of the National Commission for the Indian Medicine System, 2019, and the Bill of the National Commission for Homeopathy, 2019, were presented today at the Rajya Sabha. In January, these bills were referred to the committee by President M Venkaiah Naidu.
The committee recommended a new composition for the National ISM Commission with an increase in membership from 29 to 44 and from 22 to 27 for the National Homeopathy Commission.
