A Memory that's etched deeply in the journey


Meeting the former Prime Minister, Hon. Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, for submitting the Memorandum for the formation of the Herbal Medicinal Plant Board.

To ensure an uninterrupted supply of herbal medicines to Ayurveda medicine manufacturing units, we initiated the idea of herbal medicinal plantations with the help of marginal farmers. We presented a paper at NABARD for the need for formation of a Medicinal Plant Board. This proposal was submitted to the (Late) Prime Minister, Hon. Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee and the concerned Ministry. The Board was formed on recommended suggestions and the same is now functioning effectively. We were also a role model in bringing up good manufacturing practices successfully as per WHO guidelines.
