Uttarakhand govt Ayush villages tally goes to Eight

Written by Anil Singh

Uttarakhand established its first Ayush village at Bhowali in Nainital district. Ayush means “something which blesses long life”, is the Uttarakhand government initiative to promote alternative therapies, like Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, in the state. The Government hopes that this initiative will create employment opportunities among people even in the remote regions of the state.

Uttarakhand government has decided to develop seven more Ayush villages in the state, said Uttarakhand health and family welfare department and Ayush minister Banshidhar Bhagat.

The seven more villages will be in the hilly districts of Chamoli, Tehri, Champawat, Almora, Pauri, Bageshwar and Pithoragarh. The specific villages in the said districts go as follows: Auli village in Chamoli district, Koti in Tehri, Abatmount in Champawat, Binsar in Almora, Kanwashram in Pauri, Garur in Bageshwar and Chandak village in Pithoragarh district.

In this regard, the Uttarakhand government has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Emami Limited.
