20 June 2016 Current Affairs: Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani has decided to setup a 'Yoga Department' in the six central universities during this academic year.
The first ever 'Yoga Olympiad' for all government schools ahead of the International Yoga Day, Irani said the decision has been taken on basis of recommendations of a UGC committee, which was setup to explore the feasibility of Yoga studies in higher education institutions.
Last year, during the International Yoga Day, we had not only organised a competition for school children through NCERT, but also proposed introducing Yoga in B.Ed and M.Ed curriculum. This year, in a bid to introduce it in higher education, UGC had formed a committee and it has made its recommendations to the government.we have decided to either setup a new Yoga department or revamp it in six central universities in the current academic year.
The six central universities where the initiative would be introduced are : Central University in Uttarakhand, Central University in Kerala, Central University in Manipur, and Central University in Rajasthan and Central University in Amarkatnak.
