DNA: Chief minister BS Yeddyurappa on Thursday said that the cabinet would discuss the location for an Ayurveda University in the state.
Speaking at an event related to the fourth international Ayurveda Congress and Argogya Expo, he said the Central government had approved the state’s proposal for setting up of the varsity.
Union minister for medical education SA Ramadass said that the proposal had been pending for five years.
“The Rajiv Gandhi University for Health Sciences already has a department for Ayurveda. This will, however, be the first time that an entire university would be dedicated to Ayurveda,” said Ramadass.
He added that Rs2 crore has been allocated for the Ayurveda Congress, starting on December 9.
