Naik also said the guidelines for expanding insurance to additional Ayush treatments have also been finalised. He said funds of Rs 325 crore have been released to states for activities under National Ayush Mission (NAM) based on scrutiny of proposals.

In collaboration with NITI Aayog and Invest India, a Scheme for Integrated Health Research (SIHR) has been finalised with an outlay of Rs 490 crore, Naik said, adding that this would address the untapped potential of integration of AYUSH systems with modern medicine.

In the past hundred days, the Central Research Councils of Ayurveda, Unani and Siddha have validated 110 classical formulations for 60 conditions, by generating evidence on clinical safety and efficacy, he said.
