With great pleasure and pride I stand before you as the 1st servant of our great organization The Indian Medical Association of Tamilnadu State Branch.The IMA is the largest NGO in our country. Our state is No.2 in the country

The Association started with the purpose to propagate the current updates in the medical field. But it has now become the custodian of our profession hence raising very loud voice on issues affecting our profession.Whenever there is an issue involving Health care and its services IMA comes as your saviour

Though we have many specialty associations the only belligerent Association is IMA which is the mother body of all the associations. This we need to keep in mind always The wings and schemes of IMA like FSS, PPLSSS, AMS, Paramedical Wing and NHB are giving tremendous service to our members.

All these are possible due to tireless work of our Past State Presidents, the past office bearers and the trust and cooperation by all of you. My salutations to everyone who have contributed for our state branch success at this juncture.

I have reached this stage only because of the whole hearted support of my Erode IMA members, and by the support of the leaders of IMA Tamilnadu. I will be failing in my duty if I do not recognize the support of all my family members especially my wife Sumathi Raja who are tolerating my absence during all week-ends.


We are No.2 in position in the country on membership Strength. We have plans to make Tamilnadu as No.1 position in membership with your support. We should enroll more women doctors as our members and stand first in the country. We seek the support of the Tamil Nadu Medical Council in this aspect.


Though it has been included in 2018 amendments, The Medical Service was dropped from CPA by the Central Government in its amendments in 2019. We have been informing our members for proper documentation adhering to standard protocols by our members.


The certain aspects of NMC (Section 32, 50 and 51) is not only affecting the our profession but adversely affecting the public. We are mainly concerned on organized crosspathy and quackery in the passed NMC bill.Some of the private medical colleges are exploiting and the students are facing the hardship.

Protected Zone

We appeal to our State Government to declare all the Hospitals both Government and private clinical establishments as protected zones to render medical service in a safe, peaceful environment. A Doctor or paramedical person should not have any fear psychosis while rendering his or her services.


During my State Secretary period under the Presidentship of Dr. R.V.S Surrendran we have implemented online elections. We are introducing IT wing is our State in order to streamline various programmes to reach our members very effectively and Quickly, which has become the order of the day.

Physical + Mental health of our members

Most often we ignore our own health in serving the public. Every Doctor should take care of his own health without fail. Our profession is becoming very stressful and demanding. There are many suicides among doctors that are taking place globally is an evidence for the above statement. We have plans to reduce the stress level among the Doctors and it will be implemented this year

IMA Task Force: (Hospital Guards)

Every hospital would be having two or more securities. We can give a common uniform and employ fit persons. In the event of crisis we can call and bring them to crisis spot, before the police arrives. This is very easy and possible in order to protect the Hospitals from mob attacks. I request our Honorable Health Minister and Home Minister of Government of Tamilnadu to give recognition a like-wise as that of Home guard. Today I am happy to inaugurate this pilot project at Erode IMA.

Anti Quackery Bill

I appeal to Our Honorable Chief Mminister and Honorable Health Minister to bring an Anti-Quackery bill in order to curb the menace of illiterate and illegal medical treatment. This would certainly improve the image our Government and the medical profession. This will prevent the innocent public who become a prey in hands of quacks. This bill would be first of its kind in the entire country. IMA is very much willing to work with Government in order to bring such a bill. This is practically possible after the implementation of Clinical establishment act.


I am planning to bring patient redress forum in every district. Patients can file about their grievances to the senior member of our profession. This would improve Patient – Doctor Relationship in due course.


I encourage all the IMA branches to start Health and Hygiene club in Government Schools. We would create awareness on
1. Hand wash
2. Awareness about normal communicable and non communicable disease
3. Learning difficulties
4. Child sexual abuse etc.,
I take this wonderful opportunity in welcoming the delegates and office bearers, State and National.I also warmly welcome the friends and relatives, all the well-wishers and all the staff who have assisted and aided me smoothly through the process.

Hearty welcome all of you!
