Central Council of Homoeopathy
Set up in 1973, the Central Council of Homoeopathy (CCH) is a statutory apex body under the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Department of AYUSH. It was formed to monitor and control homeopathy education in India. It also prescribes course curriculum and maintains central registers of homoeopaths.
Main Objectives of CCH
- Any university or similar institution in India offering either a degree or a diploma in homoeopathy can do so only if it is approved by CCH.
- The CCH also defines particular course curriculum and notifies benchmarks that need to be maintained by homoeopathy teaching institutions.
- Maintains a central registry of all homoeopathy physicians in India.
In 2007, the Union Health Ministry set up the 'National Council for Clinical Establishments' to "determine minimum standards" for clinical establishments.

The Council regulates the Bachelor of Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery (B.H.M.S.) which is a graduate degree in Homeopathy, awarded after the study of five and a half years duration, including one-year internship. BHMS covers medical knowledge of the homeopathic system.
