    Homeopathic Doctors are also working in Government Hospitals. Now five universities are conducting BHMS (Bachelor of Homeopathic Medical Science) Degree Course. The basic qualification for getting admission is F.Sc. The course is of five years of duration.


    Curently Homeopathic Doctors are working in grade 15, there is no incentive for them even after serving 25 years. They are retiring in the same grade.

    Please make some uniform policy and do allocate something for them.

    Some time ago, Chief Minister Punjab issued directive letter to finalized service structure but still it is pending but a new hope is born after the newspaper statement issued by the Prime Minister. When Federal Government will announce a uniform policy then the same will be applicable in all provinces. Therefore, it is good step.

    Currently, five universities of Pakistan are conducting Five Years Degree Course BHMS on the basis of F.Sc basic qualification. National Council for Homeopathy Govt of Pakistan is providing registration for practicing homeopathic medicines. But how you will justify to induct these homeopathic doctors in grade 15 ? When higher education commission has defined the status of BHMS doctors equal to M.Sc (See 8-61/HEC/AA/2008/1822. Your kind attention is invited to define and clarify the criteria of induction of GRADUATE HOMEOPATHIC DOCTORS. Maximum are unemployed and looking of jobs.

    If uniform policy is formulated in the capital it will as beneficial in the province. There are above 272 vacancies of Homeopathic Medical Officers in Punjab Government Hospitals. About 100 Vacancies are lying vacant. Ministry of Finance budget for these vacancies does laps every year. Govt should fill the vacant posts immediately to provide employment to unemployed Homeopathic Doctors.
