As All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) celebrated its sixth foundation day on Friday, Union Minister of Ayush Sarbananda Sonowal said that India should come forward to take global leadership with a holistic healthcare approach while congratulating AIIA for its academic achievements.
Investors across the globe are enthusiastic about investing in the Ayush sector and we should work to tap that opportunity, he said on the occasion.
The Minister said that the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development has allotted 12 Acres of land for the expansion of the All India Institute of Ayurveda.
“This support will encourage the efforts made by AIIA to upgrade services for Holistic Healthcare,” he added.
On this occasion, six MoUs have been signed between AIIA and different well-known institutions like Hindustan Salt, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and the Heartfulness Institute.

Minister of State for Ayush Munjapara Mahendrabhai Kalubhai said, “Over the last six years, the AIIA has evolved as a symbol of excellence, innovation, and a bridge between our old traditions and the demands of modern healthcare. It has consistently pushed the limits of Ayurvedic research, teaching, and practice.”
“In the same context, new additions have been made in the form of a Molecular biology laboratory and skill labs by the institute. With the inauguration of AIIA in 2017, the dream of former Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee has come true,” he added.
On celebrating the sixth year, AIIA director Tanuja Nesari called it a remarkable milestone and expressed gratitude to the ‘AIIA family’ for their hard work. We all have together built this institute and we are extremely proud of our journey so far, she added.
“It’s a remarkable milestone that wouldn’t have been possible without the unwavering support of our PM Modi Ji, Ministry of Ayush and our Ministers. We want to thank the AIIA family for their hard work. Together, we’ve built something memorable and I am immensely proud of our journey so far. Celebrating sixth year foundation day symbolizes our commitment to preserving and promoting the traditional science of healing while embracing modern research and innovations,” Tanuja Nesari said.
The highlight of this momentous occasion was the unveiling of the statue of the late Padma Vibhushan Vaidya Brihaspati Dev Triguna by Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal at the newly christened “Vaidya Brihaspati Dev Triguna Auditorium”.

Vaidya Brihaspati Dev Triguna was a legendary figure in the world of Ayurveda. His lifelong dedication to the practice and promotion of Ayurveda made him earn the prestigious Padma Vibhushan award, one of the highest civilian honours in India.
AIIA was established on Oct 17, 2017, for the promotion and advancement of the knowledge and practice of Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of medicine. Over the past six years, the institution has made tremendous strides in this field, becoming a hub for Ayurvedic education and research not only in India but on global scale.
Very recently, the institute is accredited with an A++ grade by NAAC, which is the first institute under the Ministry of Ayush to achieve such heights in the first cycle.
On this occasion, Minister Shri Sarbanand Sonowal handed over the A++ certificate of NAAC to the director of the institute Tanuja Nesari. Various technical documents have been released at this moment.
The President of Heartfulness Institute (fondly called Daaji) gave a virtual key note address and emphasised the importance of meditation and its relevance in the field of Ayurveda. He expressed his desire to open centre of Ayurveda with AIIA at Kanha Shantivanam, Hyderabad.
AIIA also honoured two senior most teachers on this occasion.
Sarbananda Sonowal was the Chief Guest for the programme. Padma Bhushan Vaidya Devendra Triguna President, Governing Body, RAV, Secretary of Ministry of Ayush Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha and Joint Secretary of Ministry of Ayush BK Singh were the Guest of Honour for the event
