The aim is to promote exports of Aysuh products through a cluster approach, according to Exim Bank officials. Exim Bank and TACT, a special purpose vehicle by the Department of Ayush, Government of India, signed a loan agreement on Thursday for setting up the facilities.

The company would set up facilities for testing and analysis, product validation, safety studies and manufacturing. Besides, a facility is being developed to support entrepreneurs compete in the international market, and to develop a research and development centre for Indian Systems of Medicine (ISM) products, especially Siddha and Ayurveda.

TN has nearly 900 units in the ISM sector and contributes close to 7 per cent to the overall industry turnover.
