·                     The Section 13A of the IMCC Act deals with the regulation of opening of new colleges, increase of admission capacity and start of new or higher course of study in Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani colleges and the Section 12A of the HCC Act deals with the regulation of opening of new colleges, increase of admission capacity and start of new or higher course of study in Homoeopathy colleges.
