It certainly is! And the "Literary and Scientific Societies Act" it is abusing is dated 1854! Perhaps it's time for a revision - hopefully one less amenable to abuse!

Indian Board of Alternative Medicine is legit
I can attest that it is a fine school with a fine curriculum which is Govt. approved. The Govt. of India does offer attestation of their programs as being authentic. Legally, alternative medicine is an exempt profession in India. Homeopathy and Ayurveda are not considered alternaative but rather traditional Indian medicine and allopathy being considered Western.

They offer distance learning as well as clinical training (minimum 7 days per month) in general Western physical examination and lab interpretation as well as practical training in special alternative therapies such as acupunture, chiropractic, herbalism, Traditional Chinese medicine, naturopathy.
Graduates are permitted to practice these anywhere in India.
RMP (AM) is registered medical practitioner alternative medicine and is not to be confused with Rural Medical Practitioner.

I removed the link from your post because it looked like spam to me. Can you make your case by using credible third party sources?

I would like to upload a file from the Government Body in India of validity of the programmes conducted by the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines. However i am unable to do so on account of file size being restricted to just 24KB while the file size that is to be uploaded is about 1100 KB.
If anyone can help, would be highly appreciated.
In India anything can get approval if you warm Politician's hands. Its a shame that there are so many bodies like this who are of no value but approved by the government.

Well i am an Indian and i would not tolerate a non-resident commenting on such practices in India. If you really think anything is possible in India by warming politician's hands, i would like to purchase a couple of States in India and would also like to become the President for a couple of months. Please warm the politician's hands and let me have them!!
It is best you look into your own country's well-being which at present is much worse.
And i think the question here was whether the institution is legally authorized to operate or not for which i requested documents from IBAM which clearly indicate so and anyone who is genuinely interested in the field can request the same from the institution or i can upload it too.

Your patriotism is definitely appreciable, but please look at what you arguing about.
The question here is not just whether the institution is "legally authorized to operate". Words can mean different things in different countries. There are many institutions in India that are 'authorized" to award certificates and diplomas in various fields. What we are debating here is the value of such diplomas.
IMHO, the degrees provided by this Institution can be of any value to anybody if:
- They are recognized by the University Grants Commission (which is the APEX body for University Accreditation) or Association of Indian Universities.
- The degrees are recognized by corresponding professional bodies (like Medical Council of India)

A few days ago, a CBI Judge (CBI is like FBI/CIA here) was bribed ($6 Million) to get a bail by one of the guys Janardhan Reddy who is accused in illegal mining scam.

If you want, i can produce thousands and thousands of pages of evidence on all the scams in India including 2G, Coal Scam and Illegal Mining in many states.
In education , you can easily bribe an Education Minister and get your school approved/accredited.

Please don't get carried away by these "legitimate but fake" institutions - their certificates are not worth the paper they are printed on.
Fake doctors had IBAM "certificates!"
I read the article and note that some of the "fake doctors" arrested had certificates from the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines.
That should be proof positive of how the authorities regard the papers of this "institution."
"Most institutes or boards which have supposedly given them certificates are non-existent. These include the Indian Multipurpose Medical Welfare Society, Indian Board of Alternative Medicines (affiliated to the UN!), International Association of Educator for World Peace and Rural Medical Practitioners Association of India. The majority of these quacks practised allopathy." - emphasis mine, J.

See No. 13 of this page and decide ...
See No. 23

This school is accredited because of Calcutta court order which "directed the West Bengal government, the West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) and other respondents to file affidavits within three weeks on an application by Indian Board of Alternative Medicine (IBAM), Kolkata, challenging a government circular against them... while directing to file affidavit further directed to maintain status quo in this matter"
So students, and their degrees are recognized by West Bengal Medical Council, but students still need registration with professional bodies according to their alternative medicines profession, like with NIMH if someone is a herbalist in UK, or with other bodies in different professions and have valid insurance certificate.
You easily blamed IBAM, what you have me to say about British MSC degrees that are training alternative medicine practitioners and have 6 subjects only, no anatomy no phisiology, no practice of medicine, no professional body accreditation, but are one of the biggest and recognized universities, lets say more prestigious universities. Is it everything ok with them, or they just use they political power?
