A 55-year-old quack who was working as a doctor and prescribing Allopathy medications without holding an MBBS degree has been booked by the Medical Officer of the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC). The accused quack, named only as Dagdu Sahebrao Thackeray, is a graduate of the Bachelor of Electro-homeopathy Medicine and Surgery (BEMS), an Indian medical program that is no longer recognized.

After examining a list of eleven BEMS graduates from Navi Mumbai to see if any of them were still in practice, the corporation discovered that Thackeray was still in practice.

"BEMS graduates are not permitted to identify themselves as doctors or use the 'Dr' abbreviation in front of their names. It is not their place to recommend allopathic medications. It was discovered that Thackeray operated a clinic where he prescribed allopathic medications and prefixed his name with "Dr." Syringes from the clinic and allopathy medications were discovered, according to an NMMC medical officer.
