BELLARY: The Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) has decided not to grant permission to the Taranath Government Ayurveda College here for admitting 40 undergraduate students and seven postgraduate students for the 2008-09 academic year. The reason is that the college lacks proper infrastructure. The order, dated August 19, 2008, has jeopardised the future of 41 students.
Even before the order came, 34 students out of an intake of 40, were given admission to the undergraduate course, while seven were admitted to the postgraduate course in medicine this year.
The denial of permission has also brought to light the apathy of the State Government in providing the infrastructure to the college. The institution is among three Ayurveda colleges run by the Government in the State.
In view of the deficiencies, particularly shortage of beds and low attendance of out-patient and in-patient departmental staff, which violate the provisions of the Indian Medical Central Council Act (IMCC), the Department of AYUSH has taken strict cognisance of such issues as they tend to adversely affect the ability of the college to provide quality medical education.
The order was passed based on observations made by the Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM) during its inspection of the college. The CCIM found several lacunae relating to implementation of eligibility conditions and standards laid down by the IMCC Act. The college does not have adequate qualified teaching staff. Only 26 of them are present against a sanctioned strength of 35 for the undergraduate course. Only 73 beds are present as against a required 150, while sufficient medical and paramedical staff are not available either. In addition, there are no medical officers, pharmacists, nurses, dressers, radiologists, operation theatres nor any labour rooms. The CCIM team, which recorded the above findings, said it would ask the college to submit a report in this regard.
Sources in the college told The Hindu that as against 71 posts of teaching and non-teaching staff, only 55 were filled and 17 posts, mostly that of technical staff, were vacant. At the hospital, 26 out of 62 sanctioned posts of paramedical staff were vacant.
The fact that the institution did not have a separate hospital building was another major problem. “At present, the hospital is being run in the college premises and treatment is being given with the help of available staff,” sources said.
When contacted, Dr. K. Vishwambara, principal, said he had already drawn the attention of the Secretary of the Medical Education Department about the orders, and also about the future of the students who were recently admitted.
