Lakshma Reddy said efforts were being made to set up AYUSH departments in nearly all the major teaching hospitals, which used to offer Allopathy treatment to the patients. He also asked Ayurveda experts to find medicines which, like allopathy, can give immediate relief but without the harmful side-effects associated with allopathic medicine. He said the Union Government has approved 100 percent FDI in healthcare systems.

Mr Modi said, investors should also come forward for Yoga and Ayurveda.

Emphasising that Ayurveda will provide affordable healthcare, Union Minister for State for AYUSH, Shripad Yesso Naik on Monday stated that a three-fold increase in market size of Ayurvedic products from Dollars 2.5 billion to Dollars 8 billion is expected by 2022.

"But in the last three years, the situation has been reversed to a large extent", Modi said.

The prime minister urged private players to use part of their corporate social responsibility funds to help strengthen Ayurveda.

He said attempts were made during the British Rule to weaken India's traditional methods, including that of medicine, farming and science. "Let's pledge to strengthen, revive Ayurved", Modi said. "Those nations who leave their heritage behind are destined to lose their identity".

According to the prime minister, efforts were allegedly made to destroy "India's strengths" and its traditions such as Yoga and Ayurveda were belittled during the "era of slavery" (pre-independence period). However, after getting freedom from slavery, there was hope that whatever was left would be preserved", Modi said, while adding: "But it did not become a priority.

Noting that people across the world are becoming increasingly attracted to health and wellness, the prime minister suggested that time was ripe for an atmosphere of Ayurveda to develop.

He said the Ministries of Ayush and Agriculture can guide farmers to sow medicinal plants in their fields. With the demand for medicinal plants increasing worldwide, the World Health Organization (WHO) has projected that the global herbal market will grow to Dollars 5 trillion by 2050 from the current level of USD 62 billion.
