“Governtment of India is considering to set-up a structured regulation for AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy) medicines” said Shripad Yesso Naik , Minister of State for AYUSH. In 2003, the Department of Indian System of Medicine and Homeopathy (ISM&H) was renamed to Department of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH). Presently, there are no formalized rules for AYUSH medicine regulations while the registration of medical devices in India is handled by the Central Drug Standards and Control Organization.
