Budgetary Allocated Funds for AYUSH 2015-16

For Ministry of AYUSH a total Budgetary provision of Rs.1214 crore has been earmarked for the current financial year 2015-16. Out of the above Rs.1008 crore are earmarked for Plan and Rs.206 crore are earmarked for Non-Plan.

Out of the Plan Budget Rs.690 crore is earmarked for Central Sector Schemes and Rs.318 crore for Centrally Sponsored Schemes. The above outlay is proposed to be distributed amongst various Central Sector and Centrally Sponsored schemes of the Ministry.

The amount will be spent in accordance with the guidelines stipulated in the scheme documents, General Financial Rules and keeping in view instructions issued by the Government of India, from time to time.

More provision is likely to be needed in case of Centrally Sponsored Scheme ‘National Ayush Mission'(NAM) under Promotion of AYUSH, which was approved and notified on 29.9.2014 as the States/UTs are gearing up to absorb the funds for development and promotion of AYUSH.
