Online doctors' registry launched

Bangalore, Mar 9, 2013 DHNS

Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar, on Friday, launched the online biometric registration of all the Ayurvedic and Unani doctors in the State, in order to crackdown on unlicensed medical practitioners and quacks. 

Shettar said the registration system is a good initiative taken by The Karnataka Ayurveda and Unani Practitioners (KAUP) Board. “This initiative should be extended to other forms of medicine also, which will keep the quacks at bay,” he said.

He added that the government will extend its complete support for the development of the Ayush system of medicine and set up Ayush centres in every hobli and taluk in a phased manner.

The website: www.kaupboard.karnataka.gov.in, will contain details on all the 34,000-odd registered Ayurveda and Unani practitioners, and will include four main security features including a photo of the practitioner, a signature, a thumb impression and a 2D barcode containing a unique registered number.


This will help patients to verify the doctor’s identify using the unique registration number.
According to official figures, there are 29,000 Ayurvedic doctors, 1,500 Unani, 500 Yoga and Naturopathy practioners, over 2,400 practitioners of integrated systems of medicine (both Ayurveda and Allopathy) and four Sidda registered doctors in the State.
