Growth of Ayurveda in the past 8 years
Shedding light on the growth of Ayurveda, PM Modi stated that Ayurveda has grown from Rs 20,000 crore eight years ago to Rs 1.50 lakh crore now. Since the global market is growing day by day, we must try to benefit by undertaking medicinal plantations. It will also help in the generation of employment.
Moreover, talking about the significance of evidence-based databases, PM Modi states, “Modern science and treatment rely on the evidence-based database. The Ayurveda sectors need to generate such a database. The Union government's Ayush Portal already has some 40,000 research studies uploaded”. PM Modi further stated that yoga and Ayurveda tourism is possible in Goa and the establishment of the All India Institute of Ayurveda is good kickstart.
