Panchkula, February 12

There is immense potential in the field of ayurveda and yoga in the country as it provides better treatment and the AYUSH Ministry is getting MoU offers from abroad, which will provide better opportunities in the field of research.

Shripad Yesso Naik, Union Minister of State in the AYUSH Ministry, said this on the sidelines of the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the National Institute of Ayurveda at the Mansa Devi Complex here today. Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of the project from Kurukshetra through the digital link.

Naik said the project would cost around Rs 270.50 crore and the institute would provide better opportunities for young people for ayurveda treatment, education and research with a 250-bed IPD hospital. He said in the national-level institute, over 500 students would get admission in under-graduate, post-graduate and PhD courses every year. Hostel, staff quarters, guest house and other facilities would be provided in this institute and the construction work on these was likely to be completed within two years. He said the topography and geo-technical investigation had been completed for this. The concept plan, master plan and architectural picture were being finalised and construction of the building would start shortly, he said.

Expressing gratitude to the Haryana Government and the Mansa Devi Shrine Board for providing 20-acre land for the project, Naik said two crore people of Haryana, Himachal, Punjab and the tricity would be benefited. He said the project would also generate employment for the youth of these states. He assured that the project would be completed soon and added that there would be no dearth of funds for the project.
