As number of remedies are increased in homoeopathy. Dr.Hahnemann himself felt the need of indexing symptoms of remedies in order to obtain similimum in shortest time, this need gave birth to repertories & then afterward indexing by different pillars with their methods produces enormous repertories like Alphabetical, clinical, philosophical, cards, etc.
Out of this, Card repertory technique, is one of the most scientific & time saving repertorization technique in daily practice. But unfortunately these repertories are some how neglected by profession, DR.V.R.KHANAJ & DR. Mrs. A.M. PATIL refocused card repertories and prepared synoptic cards.
