The-Government-Ayurveda-College-Thripunithura-KeralaThe AMAI (Ayurveda Medical Association of India) has come out strongly against the government of Kerala for its marked disinterest in the development of its three Ayurvedic academic institutions, according to a latest news report.

According to the former general secretary of AMAI, Dr VG Udayakumar,

Government Ayurveda Medical College at Thiruvananthapuram is the oldest Ayurveda medical college in the country with biggest hospital and more patients. The hospital has 600 beds and every time they are occupied. But there is no attempt from the government to develop and convert it to a model medical college. The government can also convert Kerala to an educational state of Ayurveda.

Kerala has a total of 16 Ayurveda medical colleges including three in the government sector. The government Ayurveda medical college in Thiruvananthapuram has a long history of 125 years, but it has only nine PG programmes.
