Prime Minster Narendra Modi on Friday said that the government has set a target of setting up 12,500 Ayush centres across India, 4000 of which will be set up this year.
Modi made the statement while speaking at Yoga Awards ceremony in New Delhi. Delivering speech he also underscored the need to create a homogenous system by creating an “Ayush grid”. It will be on the lines of one nation, one tax and one nation, one mobility card, he said. The move would be helpful to remove silos in the area of Ayush.
“We are opening 1.5 lakh health, wellness centres,” he added.
The prime minister also pitched for linking technology with tradition in the practise of Ayush medicine.
He said the government was working towards bringing in more professionals in the field of Ayush and necessary steps are being taken to that effect.
