A more focused approach has been seen in matters related to Medical Negligence since the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) was made applicable to the Medical Profession. Cases of medical negligence are now being filed in consumer courts instead of the regular courts.

While performing Ayurvedic procedure; every Ayurveda practitioner should be aware about medicolegal aspects regarding consent. This article is a preliminary approach to validate whether we can find solution for emerging medicolegal issues regarding consent in medical practice.
