Admission in Ayurveda Colleges

 

 

As detailed in the Annexure, Ayurveda colleges have been denied permission to take admission during the academic session 2012-13 because of not meeting the approved parameters of required number of teachers including Higher Faculties, at least one teacher in each Department and hospital requirements namely required number of beds, Out Patients Department (OPD) attendance and In Patients Department (IPD) bed occupancy of patients.

            As a result of steps taken by the Government including training of visitors, hearing committee etc. out of 261 Ayurveda colleges in the country, till 22.08.2012, 161 colleges have been permitted for taking admission of students and 80 colleges have been denied permission. Thus the processing of more than 90% cases of existing Ayurveda Colleges for 2012-13 academic session has been completed by 22nd August, 2012 (Annexure).

             Government does not propose to deploy AYUSH doctors in rural and remote areas by imparting them one year training in allopathic system of medicine.

However, mainstreaming of AYUSH strategy under NRHM envisaged deployment of AYUSH doctors at co-located facilities of Primary Health Centers (PHCs) and Community Health Centers (CHCs) including these centers located in the rural and remote areas.

            The above information was given by the Minister of  State for Health & Family Welfare Shri S. Gandhiselvan   in a written reply  in the Lok  Sabha today.
