Homoeopathy Central Council (Amendment) Bill, 2019

It amends Homoeopathy Central Council Act, 1973 to increase the time period for supersession of the Central Homoeopathy Council from one year to two years. 

Background

Homoeopathy Central Council Act, 1973 sets up tCentral Council of Homoeopathy (CHC) which regulates homoeopathic education and practice. It was amended in 2018 to provide for supersession of CHC. It mandated to reconstitution of CHC within one year from date of its supersession. However, in the interim period, Union Government (AYUSH Ministry) had constituted Board of Governors, to exercise powers of CHC.  However, during this one year tenure CHC was not reconstituted due to non-updation of State registers of homoeopathy during general election.
