AYUSH Courses through NEET from Next Session

 

        NEW DELHI.JUN.9: Admission to various AYUSH courses will be conducted through the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) from the next academic (2018-19) session. The decision was taken to standardize the admission procedure and attract meritorious students to the AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy) stream. The Ministry of AYUSH has sent advisories to all state governments in this regard.
        "The demand for ayurveda, homoeopathy, naturopathy and unani medicines and yoga have increased worldwide and the number of students pursuing such courses have also risen. So there is a need to maintain standard of education in this stream," Minister of State for AYUSH Shripad Yesso Naik said.
He said that with the introduction of NEET, private examinations would not be conducted to fill seats in any of the AYUSH colleges.
