On 8 Septem­ber 2018, FICCI led a del­e­ga­tion of AYUSH in­dus­try mem­bers, for a meet­ing with Min­is­ter MoEF&CC Dr Harsh Vard­han. The pur­pose of the meet­ing was to dis­cuss pos­i­tive pol­icy rec­om­men­da­tions and re­solve un­der­ly­ing is­sues ham­per­ing the growth of the sec­tor. Praveen K Mit­tal, Di­rec­tor, FICCI, put forth the view of the del­e­ga­tion and ap­prised the min­is­ter of FICCI's ac­tive AYUSH Com­mit­tee, which he men­tioned, had been ded­i­cat­edly work­ing on var­i­ous is­sues per­tain­ing to the sec­tor such as brand­ing and pro­mo­tion, ef­fec­tive pol­icy ad­vo­cacy, im­prov­ing in­come of farm­ers in the sec­tor, en­hanc­ing the ease of do­ing business, es­tab­lish­ing in­ter­na­tional stan­dards in pro­duc­tion and set­ting up bet­ter ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem.

In ad­di­tion, Mit­tal sub­mit­ted a rep­re­sen­ta­tion to the min­is­ter on 'Bio­di­ver­sity Act 2014' that had been neg­a­tively im­pact­ing the do­mes­tic man­u­fac­tur­ers and sug­gested pol­icy mea­sures to bring in a pos­i­tive change for the AYUSH in­dus­try. These sug­ges­tions were met with a pos­i­tive ac­cep­tance. The del­e­ga­tion was di­rected by the min­is­ter on fur­ther course of ac­tion and were promised a swift and de­ci­sive solution from the gov­ern­ment.
