In the state, a total of 38,000-Ayurvedic, 12,000-Homeopathy and 1,05,000- Allopathic practitioners are registered. But only 40percent are serving in the state. Among this, 90 percent of the practitioners are practicing in the cities. Hence there is a lack of practitioners in the rural areas. Based on this, it is necesssary to distribute the practitioners depending on the population of District and Taluk. Khader said, he would discuss this matter with the ministers.
