Govt. of India to launch AYUSH visa to promote medical tourism

In a bid to promote health and wellness the ministry of AYUSH introduced Ayush visa. PM Narender Modi said that his government introduced an Ayush visa category to promote AYUSH medical tourism. The theme for the same is ‘HEAL IN INDIA’. PM further added that India is witnessing growth in Ayurveda, naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and homeopathy medicines, supplements, and cosmetics. The Ministry of AYUSH is further working on generating more job opportunities and income for farmers.
“The Ministry of AYUSH has taken several major steps to encourage start-up culture in the field of traditional medicines. A few days back an incubation center developed by the All India Institute of Ayurveda was inaugurated. During the first four months of the current calendar year, as many as 14 start-ups from India have joined the Unicorn Club,” said PM Modi.
“The central government is making efforts to promote the export of AYUSH products. Emphasis has been laid on mutual recognition of AYUSH drugs with other countries. For this, more than 50 MOUs have been signed with different countries. Besides, AYUSH experts are developing ISO standards in collaboration with the Bureau of Indian Standards. This will open a huge export market for AYUSH in more than 150 countries,” he said.
A new category will be launched by FSSAI named ‘AYUSH AHAR’ in its regulation. It will facilitate herbal nutritional supplements.
