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.
