New Delhi, 29 August 2017: As per recent statistics, India has only about 1 million allopathic doctors to treat its population of over 1.3 billion people.

According to the IMA, in such a situation, patients must share beds and doctors face severe burnout due to the skewed doctor-patient ratio in these areas.
