Unless you've been living under a rock or some other such isolated region you must know by now that the Indian Medical Association have called a nation-wide strike on June 25 i.e. today. So why are they protesting? The main reason is the decision to dissolve the Medical Council of India (MCI) and other paramedical bodies like the Nursing Council of India and the Dental Council of India and the formation of National Council for Human Resources in Health (NCHRH). The doctors fear the NCHRH will be governed by bureaucrats instead of doctors and this will lead to vested interests.
