Development of Homeopathy in Delhi

Late Dr. Madhab Chand Banerjee, L.M.S. was perhaps the first regular homeopathic practitioner in Delhi. He started his practice in 1909 and became popular.
In 1920 Rai Sahib Dr. Daya Shanker Kayastha who had obtained his M.D. Degree from Michigan in U.S.A. got converted to Homoeopathy and taught homoeopathy to a number of officials of Govt. of India by holding regular classes at Central Secretariat, and later at his own clinic in Chandni Chowk. Other Homoeopathic practitioners of this time were  Dr. K. C. Banerjee (more popularly known as Kristo Babu) and Dr. Das.
Contemporarily Dr. Yudhvir Singh was also practicing homoeopathy at Chandni Chowk, Delhi. He started a free homoeopathic dispensary with the help of Mir Mohd. Hussain Sahib, Municipal Commissioner, in 1928.
Following the partition of India, a number of homoeopathic practitioners from the Punjab came and settled in Delhi. Among them the late Dr. Diwan Jai Chand and the late Dr. V.D. Kashyap, both converts from Allopathy soon became distinguished in their work and gave a fillip to Homoeopathy in Delhi.
Among the past stalwarts of Homoeopathy in Delhi are the late doctors Rup Narain, Rajinder Kumar, P.S. Sehgal, Bishamber Das and P.N. Bhatnagar. Thereafter a large number of practitioners set up their private practice and a number of free dispensaries were opened, some of them were aided by the Delhi Municipal Committee and Delhi District Board.
60 to 70 free and charitable dispensaries were functioning in Delhi during the year 1977 - 78 of which some of them were started by the Delhi Corporation and the New Delhi Municipal Committee, in addition to the dispensaries run under the Central Govt. Health Scheme for the benefit of Central Govt. Servants. Of these, Dr. Yudhvir Singh Homoeopathic Charitable Trust managed the largest number of dispensaries from the funds of Charitable Trusts, particularly, of the Jain Community and a few were receiving grant in aid from the Delhi Corporation and the Delhi Administration.

Legislation and Government Help
The Delhi Homoeopathic Act was passed in 1956 and came into force on 1.10.1956 through the good offices of Dr. Yudhvir Singh, who was the then Health Minister of the short-lived Legislative Assembly in Delhi in those days. Under the Act, a Board of Homoeopathic System of Medicine, Delhi was established in November 1961. Nehru Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital was affiliated to the Board and the Board awarded the Diploma qualification after completion of 4 years course. With a view to prepare the cadre of teachers/examiners etc., the Board had conducted a Diploma Examination allowing private candidates to take the final examination for the first three years beginning from 1965. A large number of private practitioners from all over India and one from Sri Lanka availed this opportunity and they were awarded D.H. S. Diploma.
28 homoeopathic dispensaries were opened in Delhi by the Govt in 1978. Till 1993, Delhi was a union territory; with the formation of the Delhi State in 1993 though with limited constitutional powers, the responsibility of delivery of adequate health care was one of major responsibilities. In 1994, Government of Delhi constituted a "Homoeopathic Advisory Committee" under the chairmanship of Dr. K. G. Saxena for the development and expansion of Homoeopathy in Delhi. The Govt. of Delhi also designed various Plan Schemes for the development and expansion of Homoeopathy. Directorate of Indian System of Medicine and Homoeopathy was established in Delhi on 1st August 1996 with a separate wing of Homoeopathy in the premises of Nehru Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital. Since then this Directorate has accomplished a lot for expansion of Homoeopathy in Delhi. The present infrastructure of Homoeopathy comprises of two homoeopathic colleges Nehru Homoeopathic Medical College & Hospital and Dr. B. R. Sur Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital), Homoeopathic Dispensaries, a research and development Centre (Dilli Homoeopathic Anusandhan Parishad) and a Statutory Body (Board of Homoeopathic System of Medicine). Govt. of Delhi has already now there are 102 homoeopathic dispensaries on list.
