The homoeopathic doctor can always keep homoeopathic drugs which include patents also for dispensing to his patients and is not required to take any drug license. -Delhi govt.I have qualified (BHMS) from Karnataka and am presently registered under the State Board in Karnataka. I would like to set up a private clinic in Kerala. Do I require a separate registration from Kerala. In fact I have applied for the state Board in Kerala for registration, but on enquiry they say that it will come through only by January 2004. Does this bar me from practicing till I get my registration?
Also let me know if homoeopaths need any other license to keep and sell homoeopathic medicines - especially patents like cough syrup (for patients) in the private clinic?
The rights of qualified doctor who has already been registered in one state are covered in the provisions in section 15(1) of Central Council of Homoeopathy Act., 1973 which states as under
â..... 15. (1) - Subject to the other provisions contained in this Act, any medical qualification included in the Second or the Third Schedule shall be sufficient qualification for enrolment on any Sate Register of Homoeopathy.â
It is apparent from the above that there is no need for re-registration with every state government where one intends to practice, so you can legally practice in Kerala as long as you want. The homoeopathic doctor can always keep homoeopathic drugs which include patents also for dispensing to his patients and is not required to take any drug license. However if you want to sell homoeopathic drugs to general public there is a requirement for taking sale license from the drug controller of the respective state
