Doctors won’t report to outpatient clinics on Saturday as part of IMA protest

Protesting the introduction of the National Medical Council Bill, 2017, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has called for a nationwide strike of outpatient departments of hospitals on July 28.

“Emergency rooms, inpatient wards and other facilities will still be functioning,” said IMA Secretary, Karnataka, Dr B Veeranna to TNM. “We are in full support of the strike.”

The announcement comes in view of protest against the National Medical Commission Bill 2017, which many members of the IMA view as ‘anti-democratic and anti-poor.’

“IMA, fully conscious of its responsibility towards the generations of doctors to come, is withdrawing non-emergency medical services across the country on Saturday, July 28, 2018, from 6 am to 6 pm,” read a press release issued by IMA.

Dr Veeranna further added that introduction of the NMC, when the Medical Council of India (MCI) was in place was redundant and did not take into consideration the best interests of the general public. “The NMC is not people or profession friendly, it favours a private college system and more exams will certainly be brought into place,” he added.

The NMC would replace the 83-year-old Medical Council of India (MCI) and would allegedly interfere with the medical education system.

IMA National President Dr Ravi Wankhedkar was outspoken about the NMC Bill and said that the government is attempting to take control over how the medical profession is run and completely dismissed the idea of the same.

The press release further stated that, “The Bill has a draconian character which will cause irreparable damage to the interests of all the stakeholders and would reduce down regulatory mechanism to a puppetry with its strings attached to the government.”

While outpatient clinics will be shut down for the full 12 hours, emergency services will still be available.

ICICI Bank Surprises Analysts With Rs 120 Crore Loss In Q1

ICICI Bank Ltd, India’s third-largest lender by assets, reported a surprise first-quarter net loss on Friday on higher provisions for bad loans and treasury losses. The bank made a net loss of Rs 120 crore ($17.47 million) in the three months to June 30, compared with a profit of Rs 2,049 crore a year earlier, it said in a statement. Analysts on average had expected a net profit of Rs 1,462 crore, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Gross bad loans as a percentage of total loans was 8.81 per cent at the end of June, compared with 8.84 per cent at the end of the previous quarter and 7.99 per cent a year earlier.

The results come amid uncertainties around the bank’s long-serving Chief Executive Chanda Kochhar, who is on leave as a probe continues into alleged nepotism charges against her.

ICICI Bank, which holds the highest amount of bad loans among the country’s private-sector lenders, added Rs 4,036 crore in additional non-performing loans during the quarter, taking its total outstanding to Rs 53,465 crore.

Even if the bad loan additions in the June quarter were the slowest in 11 quarters, the bank said it had to make higher provisions for ageing non-performing loans and cases in bankruptcy court, leading to the net loss.

Total provisions more than doubled from a year earlier to Rs 5,971 crore with the bank not availing a central bank dispensation of spreading bond losses over four quarters.

Shares in ICICI Bank closed with a gain of 2.3 per cent ahead of the earnings announcement.

Our petrochemicals business generated record EBITDA with strong volumes and an upswing in polyester chain margins," said chairman and managing director Mukesh Ambani.

"Refining business performance remained steady despite the seasonal weakness in cracks. Continuing strength in global demand for oil products and implementation of more stringent environmental norms for marine fuels augurs well for our refining business," he said.

Reliance Jio posted a third straight quarterly net profit, as its cut-price plans continued to bring in more customers. Reliance Jio Infocomm, or Jio, posted a profit of Rs 612 crore ($89.15 million) in the quarter ended June 30, versus Rs 510 crore in the previous quarter.
