Patanjali Ayurved Limited will soon sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Uttarakhand government to help it set up ‘AYUSH Grams’ in at least 13 new places popular with tourists besides promoting cultivation of medicinal plants in the hilly state.
The decision was taken in a meeting between Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, Swami Ramdev and Patanjali Ayurved Managing Director Acharya Balkrishna at the chief minister’s residence in the state capital Dehradun.
The other areas of cooperation include organic farming, agriculture, animal husbandry and dairy farming, which Rawat said would prove to be the “game changers” in making the state prosperous.
He directed the senior state officials to prepare solid framework of the projects, which would be reviewed in a month’s time.
Balkrishna said that Patanjali’s research lab and other facilities will be opened for researchers and teachers of ayurveda. He added that more than 300 botanists of Patanjali can study all the medicinal plants available in the state and document them.
