On the occasion of Ayurveda Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated two Ayurveda institutes: the Institute for Teaching and Research in Ayurveda (ITRA), Jamnagar, and the National Institute of Ayurveda (NIA), Jaipur, through a videoconference on Friday.
“Everything is being integrated in the current era and this approach has made Ayurveda play an important role in the medical world. Allopathic and Ayurvedic practices will now go hand in hand. For the first time, the science of our ancient India is integrated with the science of the 21st century, ”said Prime Minister Modi.
“Now that everyone is part of the largest Ayurvedic center in the country, their responsibility has increased. You have to develop a curriculum that is of an international level, “Prime Minister Modi said after inaugurating the two institutes.
Demand for immune boosters from India, such as turmeric and Ayurvedic products, has grown globally, the prime minister said. “Despite the fact that our nation is highly populated, the Covid-19 situation is under control because all households consume immunity boosters such as turmeric milk, the herb ashwagandha, kaadha etc. The demand for these products has increased during the pandemic, ”he said.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani were also present at the event.
While the ITRA has been granted the status of an Institution of National Importance (INI) by an act of Parliament, the University Scholarship Commission (UGC) has considered the NIA to be a university.
