Postgraduate scholars of “shalya and shalakya” need to be practically trained in 58 surgeries specified in the Indian Medicine Central Council (Post Graduate Ayurveda Education) Amendment Regulation for them to independently perform these procedures after completing the course, the RajyaSabha was informed.

The notification is specific to these specified surgical procedures and does not allow “shalya and shalakya” postgraduates to take up any other type of surgery, said KiranRijiju, who holds the additional charge of the AYUSH Ministry, while responding to a question whether trained PG practitioners of Ayurveda are permitted to perform surgery under the Indian Medicine Central Council (Post Graduate Ayurveda Education) Amendment Regulation, 2020.

On whether such surgical procedures adequately ensure the health, safety and post-surgical care of patients concerned, he said in the written reply, “Yes, PG scholars of Shalya and Shalakya are well trained in performing such surgical procedures.”

“Also the infrastructure required for the same is very well regulated by the Central Council of Indian Medicine and by the State acts wherever applicable. And the council also encourages for NABH accreditation of the hospitals attached to teaching institutions,” he added.

Clarifying on whether such procedures are identical in any form to those practiced in allopathic medicine, he mentioned that the use of modern terminology in the said notification is to facilitate effective communication and correspondence not just among physicians but also among the different stakeholders, including the public.In the notification, modern terms are adopted as per requirement to ensure that the same is understood widely in the medical profession, in the stake-holding disciplines like the medico-legal, health IT etc., as well as by the members of the public.
