Rs 100 crore has been allocated to the state of Indian Medicine and Homeopathy in Tamil Nadu. As implied by Mohan Piyare, Principal Secretary, Department of Indian Medicine and Homeopathy this amount has been used towards construction of buildings for Ayurveda and Homeopathy colleges across the State in the last four-and-a-half years.
At present, the construction of these buildings for colleges in various districts is reported to be in the finishing stages of the project. In few cases, the buildings are ready for inauguration also.
