The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has approved the draft Homoeopathy Central Council (Amendment) Bill, 2019.
It will replace the Homoeopathy Central Council (Amendment) Ordinance, 2019.
The Bill seeks to extend the period for reconstitution of the Central Council from existing period of one year to two years so that the tenure of the Board of Governors may be extended for one more year from May 17, 2019.
An official release said that the affairs of the Central Homoeopathy Council have been entrusted to a Board of Governors consisting of eminent and qualified Homoeopathy Doctors and eminent administrators till such time the council is reconstituted.
“The tenure has been extended since the council could not be reconstituted within one year due to the non-updation of state registers of Homoeopathy and coincidence of general elections,” the release said.
