Allopathy Doctors And Ayurved Doctors Do Not Perform Equal Work And Are Not Entitled To Equal Pay Supreme Court

New Delhi: The Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that allopathy doctors and Ayurvedic medicine doctors do not perform equal labour therefore they do not deserve equal compensation. The Supreme Court stated that Ayurved doctors cannot perform the emergency duty and trauma care that the Allopathy doctors are capable of providing. It was also stated that Ayurvedic doctors cannot assist surgeons doing complex surgeries, whereas MBBS doctors can. In this regard, the Court observed that “We shall not be understood to mean as though one system of medicine is superior to the other. It is not our mandate nor within our competence to assess the relative merits of these two systems of medical sciences.”

The court further added Therefore, we have no doubt that every alternative system of medicine may have its pride of place in history. But today, the practitioners of indigenous systems of medicine do not perform complicated surgical operations. A study of Ayurved does not authorise them to perform these surgeries.”

The Court stated that the attendance of Ayurved doctors is not required in a post-mortem or autopsy; or in an out-patient department (OPD) in regular hospitals in cities/towns, MBBS doctors are required to attend hundreds of patients, which is not the situation with Ayurved doctors.

A Division Bench comprised of Justice V. Ramasubramanian and Justice Pankaj Mithal overruled a Gujarat High Court order holding that practitioners with a Bachelor's degree of Ayurved in Medicine and Surgery degree are to be treated at par with the  doctors having MBBS degrees and will be entitled to the benefits of the Tikku Pay Commission's recommendation.
