Kerala mulls tax rebate on ayurvedic medicines

Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said here on Monday that the government is considering tax concession on ayurveda medicines and other steps to promote the traditional system of medicine.

“We are committed to setting up authentic, quality products as well as classic, curative and promotional services such as wellness centres and ayurveda spas,” said Chandy at a global ayurveda conference here.

The government had selected seven specific areas in ayurveda for its wholesome development, he said.

“We have now got the support of Sam Pitroda who is right now working on this,” Chandy said.
