dated January 29, 1959: Ayurveda System

The Committee appointed by the Union Ministry of Health to assess and evaluate the present status of the Ayurvedic system of medicine has made suggestions for the improvement of Ayurvedic training, research, pharmaceutical concerns and status of Ayurvedic practitioners. The Committee went into the question of the position of Ayurveda in great detail and collected valuable statistics. The Committee has observed that for the time being training in both the integrated and shudh ayurvedic systems may have to continue. Post graduate and research facilities at training centres is one of the main suggestions for improvement of Ayurveda during the training course. Other recommendations pertain to the training of teachers, improvement in their status so that they may have greater inclination to teach and ensuring their social position.
