“Soon, India is going to introduce a special AYUSH visa category for foreign nationals who want to come to India to take advantage of AYUSH therapy,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in Gandhinagar in Gujarat on Wednesday (April 20).
“We are going to make a special AYUSH mark. This mark will be applied to the highest quality Ayush products made in India,” the Prime Minister said at the Global AYUSH Investment and Innovation Summit in Gandhinagar, Gujarat.
