Lucknow the capital of Uttar Pradesh does not have an active minority Unani Medical College. Although this historical city has a State Unani Medical College, known as the TAKMIL-UT- TIB COLLEGE, which came into existence by the endeavours of ATTIBAYE’ JHAWAI TOLA, (Unani Physicians/Hakims) Lucknow. The rein of this Institute was in the hands of Muslim Minority intelligentsia, but with the curse of time, and circumstances, and the ill concieved efforts of its staff to change its status, opened the door for its nationalisation by the Government of U. P and subsequently it was affiliated with the Kanpur University. Thus this one and the only minority Unani Institution was converted into a government institution.
Moved by this loss, the Eram Educational Society seriously pondered over the need of re-establising such a College for rendering valuable services to those poor “sick”, who were unable to afford the costly allopathic treatment, and decided to open a Unani Medical College at Kursi Road. Thanks to the Almighty that it has come in to existence in a four storeyed gigantic building. In consultation with, and under the guidance of educational experts and experienced doctors, the work of imparting education to students and treatment of parents through Unani medicines is being successfully done. The College boasts of multifarious departments with necessary infrastructure. equipment and faculty. besides having the facility of Hostels, which are a basic feature for any seat of learing.
