Karnataka State to open AYUSH University next year: Health Minister U.T. Khader

Minister for Health and Family Welfare U T Khader said here on Sunday that the State government will open an AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy) university next year.
It is likely to come up in Shivamogga but the venue might change, he told presspersons.
Mr. Khader said that it required at least 100 acres for the university and the government might get the land in Shimoga. In addition to academic activities the university would conduct research and development.
He said that a two-day conference of AYUSH doctors would be organised at Nehru Maidan, Mangalore from November 22. It would be organised to discuss various aspects relating to strengthening Indian system of medicine. There would be interactive sessions with well known allopathic doctors like Deviprasad Shetty and B. M. Hegde.
Mr. Khader said that the government has begun issuing bio-metric cards to AYUSH doctors in the State. It would help in identifying them and keeping away fake AYUSH doctors.
He reiterated that the health department in the State has decided to ban chewing tobacco. A proposal to this effect was pending before the government.
