  1. why the homoeopathy is neglected since many years !!!!!!!!!!! where there only pathy which can give cure !!..

  2. The post for Advisor in Homoeopathy is vacant since 4 years. Great! It just shows the apathy of the Central Government towards Homoeopathy. As a matter of fact the measly provision of 1% in the budget towards health and family welfare shows how much the present Govrnment cares for the HEALTH OF THE NATION. The answer towards why the vacant posts have not been filled to date is highly unsatisfactory. Homoeopaths are looking out for jobs and it is still hard to believe the vague answers given by the honourable members of parliament.

  3. its really a matter of regret,when job is needed & delhi is in crisis of homoeo doctor,as i’ve worked in dr b r sur colllege in 1993,,i’ve tried 4 that,,
