The legal status of homeopathy medicine in India is on an equal footing with both conventional and Ayurvedic medicine. It is recognised by Central Council of Homeopathy, Deptt. of AYUSH, Govt. of India since 1973.

Regular full time medical degree for a minimum period of 5 1/2 years (BHMS) that includes one year compulsory internship, is absolutely necessary for becoming qualified & to get license to practice homeopathy medicine in India as it gives a complete understanding not only about the structure and functioning of the human body but also a thorough understanding of the homeopathic philosophy and its practical utilization while treating diseased persons. And to do regular full time M.D. in homeopathy medicine further, admission is through an entrance examination, and you have to spend three more years after BHMS.
