    Ayush department.. there is a needs to implement GMP sincerely merely issuing GMP certificates would do no good

  2. Dr Venkata krishnan Ramakrihnan has said there is no molecule in homeopathic drugs and Ayurvedhic drugs need validation and scientific basis. Without scientific basis how is that govt is permitting these ayush fellows to practice medicine . Every one knows these bunkam ayush fellows practice modren medicine ,it amounts to quackery . Govt is having the responsibelity to propagate value and scientific medicine. Don\’t push the public into the hands of these bunkam fellows .Dont play with life of the pple. Stop these bunkam fellows practicing medicine .

  3. There are some GMP Certified units but do not comply with the standards
