The Parliamentary Panel has rejected the National Commission for Human Resource for Health Bill, 2011, and asked the government to come out with a fresh Bill.
The report of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health and Family Welfare headed by BSP MP Brajesh Pathak has considered the Bill and submitted its report to Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari on Tuesday.
“The committee has advised the government to come out with a revised comprehensive Bill before Parliament,” Pathak said.
The Bill was introduced in the Rajya Sabha in December last year by Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad. The Bill was referred to the department-related standing committee on Health and Family Welfare.
The Bill seeks to establish a mechanism to determine and regulate the standard of health education in the country. The committee pointed out that several stakeholders have raised serious apprehensions on various provisions of the Bill.
