Ayurvedic doctors on par with allopathic officers: SC

Ayurvedic doctors are entitled to parity in salary with allopathic medical and dental officers under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM/NHM) Scheme, the Supreme Court has said, Trend reports citing The Tribune India.

Refusing to entertain a petition challenging an order of the Uttarakhand High Court, a Bench led by Justice Vineet Saran on March 24 clarified ayurvedic doctors were entitled to be treated on a par with allopathic medical officers under the NRHM/NHM Scheme.

“There is no intelligible differentia so as to distinguish the ayurvedic and homoeopathic medical officers vis-à-vis allopathic and dental medical officers. There is no rationale why similarly situated persons have been discriminated against. The petitioners as well as allopathic and dental medical officers constitute a homogeneous class,” the HC had said.
