Prime Minster Narendra Modi has revealed that the government has set a target of setting up 12,500 Ayush centres across India. He said 4000 centres will be set up this year.
In his address at Yoga Awards ceremony in New Delhi, he also stressed for the need to create a homogenous system by creating an “Ayush grid” on the lines of one nation, one tax and one nation, one mobility card.
Stating that this will remove silos in the area of Ayush, he added: “We are opening 1.5 lakh health, wellness centres.” He also batted for linking technology with tradition in the practise of Ayush medicine.
According to Modi, government was working towards bringing in more professionals in the field of Ayush and necessary steps are being taken to that effect.
