Yoga has been planned to be inducted into the curriculum of Public funded universities. The University Grants Commission (UGC) plans to take the advantage of PM Narendra Modi’s thrust for the practice of yoga, along with the popularity it has gained all across the globe.

A proposal has been prepared by the apex regulatory body for higher education. The introduction of B.Sc. and M.Sc. in yoga, starting from academic session of 2016-17 in the 40 central universities, followed by state and deemed universities is in the pipeline.

According to the proposal, “It is imperative that Indian universities engage themselves in strengthening scientific evidence of the positive effects of yoga and meditation on human health. In order to pursue education and practice in yoga, it is proposed to establish centers and departments of yoga in the public-funded universities,”
