Supreme Court Commends PBT For Filing PIL, Says Doctors Should Not Go On Strike

The historic public interest litigation (PIL) filed by PBT in 2012 seeking a ban on “doctors’ strike” after a nation-wide doctors’ strike was called by Indian Medical Association (IMA) was disposed of today when a three-judge bench of Supreme Court headed by chief justice (CJI), H.L. Dattu, applauded the contentions raised in the writ petition and observed that doctors should never go on a strike putting the lives of innocent patients in danger.  However, Apex Court did not restrain doctors to go on strike by imposing specific ban or punishment against the striking doctors.  This PIL has argued argued that striking doctors may be punished by the medical council for violation of specific rules framed under Indian Medical Council Act (see the news below)
