To set up a Central Research Institute of Yoga & Naturopathy (CRIYN) at Bhubaneswar, Odisha with 100 bedded hospital, the Central Council for Research in Yoga & Naturopathy (CCRYN) has obtained 20 acres of cost free land from the State Government. Funds to the tune of Rs.157.88 lakhs have been released to the CPWD for the construction of boundary wall, walking tracks etc. Demarcation of the allotted land has been completed in July 2016. The Project is presently held up due to the resistance of the residents of the locality.
This information was given by the Minister of State (Independent Charge) for AYUSH, Shri ShripadYesso Naik in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha on 4th August.
