Last month also, doctors took out a protest march from AIIMS hospital to Parliament against the bill.
According to the bill, practitioners of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy, can practice modern medicine once they complete a short-term "bridge" course.
The bill is also aimed at bringing reforms in the medical education sector which has been under scrutiny for corruption and unethical practices.
However, the IMA has termed the bill as "draconian and undemocratic" and called for its withdrawal. (ANI)
