Alternative therapy is on rise in these days. Especially, Ayurveda has a significant role with many people seeking a solution for their chronic medical problems where allopathic treatment failed to work.

In order to enhance medical tourism and to attract foreign patients for Ayurvedic treatment of chronic health problems, Indian government is launching an Ayurveda Institute today.

On the occasion of Ayurveda Day, Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi is going to inaugurate first ever All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) today. The AIIA is modeled in accordance with AIIMS. It is the apex institute and set up to work under the Ministry of AYUSH.

Apart from inaugurating AIIA, standard guidelines for Ayurvedic treatment will also be released at this event. These guidelines were developed by the ministry.


The Institute is aimed to bring cooperation between Ayurveda and modern technology. The main motive to establish this institute is to primarily focus on fundamental research of Ayurveda, drug development and standardization.

It also aims to improve the credibility of Ayurveda and scientific validation of Ayurvedic medicine, and seeks solutions for medical problems that are ignored or not found by other branches of medical science.

The AIIA was set up in 10.015 acres of land with a budget of ₹157 crore in 2016. It has laboratories of pathology, biochemistry, microbiology and radiology, and also diagnosis facilities. It is the first medical institute that works under the AYUSH ministry by holding the NABH accreditation.

Post-graduate programme (MD/MS) and PhD courses in Ayurveda have been started for the session 2016-17 and 2017-18 respectively by the Institute.

October 17 i.e. today is Ayurveda Day. In this regard, the Ministry of AAYUSH appealed all the state governments, Ayurveda practitioners and Ayurveda teaching institutions to conduct activities like seminars, exhibitions, public lectures and radio talks.
