The government of India has made a blue-print for the expansion of Yoga and Naturopathy in the country.  Shripad Yesso Naik, Minister of State, AYUSH(IC), in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha announced about the establishment of three autonomous organizations namely, Morarji Desai National Institute for Yoga (MDNIY) in New Delhi; National Institute for Naturopathy (NIN) in Pune and Central Council for Research in Yoga and Naturopathy(CCRYN) in New Delhi.

These organisations have been established with the mandate to impart education and undertake research for scientific validation of the outcomes, thereby enhancing the acceptability of these systems. The recent initiative of the Government has succeeded in adoption of 21st June, as the International Day of Yoga. The Government has decided to celebrate the day in a befitting manner all over the world.

Various steps have been taken in advance which include Bachelors, Diploma and Certificate courses in MDNIY, Naturopathy as a treatment method in Out Patient Department (OPD), and co-location of AYUSH facilities at various health centers at state and district levels.

Besides this, Ministry of AYUSH also promotes Yoga & Naturopathy by carrying out campaigns through print and electronic media. AROGYA fairs at National and State level are organized to make public aware of the benefits of AYUSH systems of medicine including Yoga & Naturopathy. The Ministry under its Central Sector Schemes of Information Education and Communication (IEC) and International Co-operation extends financial assistance to State Governments and other reputed Government/ Non Governmental Organizations/ Universities for conducting National/ International seminars/ workshops/ symposiums to promote Yoga & Naturopathy.

The Government encourages research on Yoga and Naturopathy by  providing grants under Extra Mural Research scheme to research organizations to give further impetus to research.
