Ayurveda Bill 2020 introduced in Lok Sabha
Monday,10 Feb 2020
On Monday, the government introduced the Institute of Teaching and Research in Ayurveda Act, 2020 in the Lok Sabha, which seeks to grant the status of an institution of national importance to a cluster of ayurvedic institutions on the campus of the University of Gujarat Ayurveda in Jamnagar. The three institutes which would be clubbed are Institute of Post Graduate Teaching and Research in Ayurveda, Gulab Kunverba Ayurveda Mahavidyalaya and Institute of Ayurveda Pharmaceutical Sciences. Congressman Shashi Tharoor also objected to Bill saying that it "failed to define the requirements for fulfilling the broader perspective."
