Why this disparity in standards for Allopathic and Ayush doctors?

Becoming a doctor and being a doctor is not easy. It requires lot of hard work, dedication and sacrifice. The medical profession demands long hours as the patient comes first.
The road to becoming a doctor is long one and the journey begins from the premedical examination where an aspiring doctor tries to secure admission to a medical college amongst lakhs of aspiring doctors who appear for the entrance exams every year across the country. Five and half years of gruelling undergraduate MBBS studies then follow along with series of theory and practical exams interspersed with countless tutorials along the way including one year of compulsory internship. Today, a simple MBBS degree is not enough. To become a specialist and then a super specialist, an MBBS graduate is again required to undergo entrance exams to gain admission to the 3-year PG and 3-year DM courses. 
The road to becoming a doctor is about a decade long before a student acquires sufficient knowledge to become an expert in his/her chosen specialty.
All of us have gone through this process and are familiar with it.

Lack of awareness about dementia in India, says IMA
The problem is more in rural areas where there are not enough medical facilities available for timely diagnosis
New Delhi, 01 August 2017: According to statistics from a recent research, more than 4 million Indians above the age of 60 suffer from dementia. Add to this the fact that about 1 in 16 households with an elderly person have a dementia patient. However, many people fail to recognize and understand the symptoms, says the IMA. In approximately 70% of the population in rural areas as well, dementia remains unrecognized and this can be largely attributed to limited medical facilities.
Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability. This can become severe enough to interfere with daily life. Memory loss is an example.
