According to Central Govt.

NEHM OF INDIA IS A COMPETENT AUTHORITY.
In India there are several Boards (85 approximately) are functioning unauthorized or incompetently doing Promotion, Development & Research but except NEHM of India no one has been permitted to conduct examination and award certificates. For example :
Order of Allahabad High Court dt. 26-05-2017 in SAD No.630/2016.
As per the judgment of Hon’ble Allahabad High Court in the matter of WP SAD No. 630/2016 dt.26-05-2017, the Institutions / Organizations/ Boards/ Councils registered only S.R.Act, 1860 have no right to conduct examination and even awards certificates . Hon’ble Court also directed CBI Department to investigate this matter by lodging FIR against such Institutions. A news item was also published in Print Media “Jansatta” dt. 01-06-2017. The matter was also upheld in the Apex Court through SLP No.24307 /2017 which was dismissed on 23-10-2017 by Hon’ble Apex Court

This matter was also upheld in Hon’ble Apex Court by filing SLP No.CC 16289/2016 which was dismissed by Hon’ble Apex Court.
Therefore, now there is no confusion that NEHM of India is only organization is covered under the ambit / purview of policy decision DT. 05-05-2010 issued by Ministry of Health & F.W., Govt. of India.
Right to conduct examination and award degree /diploma /certificates to only those Boards/ Organizations / Societies permitted either one of three Competent Authorities viz. Universities under UGC (Govt. of India), State Government and Judiciary. NEHM of India has already been permitted by Judiciary to conduct examination, award diploma / certificates vide order FAO No.205/92 dt.18-11-1998 passed by Hon’ble Delhi High Court duly re-affirmed by Hon’ble Apex Court dt. 24-11-2000. Therefore, NEHM of India itself is a Competent Authority of its kind i.e. for Electropathy education and practice in accordance with the order of Hon’ble High Court, Hon’ble Supreme Court as well as Central Govt. vide Policy Decision dt. 05-05-2010 which further re-affirmed by Hon’ble Apex Court dt. 22-01-2015 in terms of there is no ban on medical practice of Electropathy.
In addition to this so many such orders of different High Court in favor of NEHM of India which confirms that NEHM of India is a competent authority has full right to conduct examination, issue certificates and the holders are entitled to practice in the system.
