    Ayurved students, battered and bruised, for Ayurvedic University in Vidarbha for justice

    The students have been facing the nagging problems. Neither the admissions take place on time nor the examinations held as per schedule. Moreover, the students have to visit allopathic hospitals for internship. There is no independent hospital.

    The students across Vidarbha, studying Ayurvedic medicine, have strongly demanded setting up of Ayurved  University in the region as the education in the high-profile medicine branch has itself become a problem and has put them in the dock. The students have been facing the nagging problems. Neither the admissions take place on time nor the examinations held as per schedule. Moreover, the students have to visit allopathic hospitals for internship. Therefore, the demand for Ayurved University in Vidarbha itself for resolving their enormous problems.

    LONG DISTANCE:

    At present, the Ayurved University in Maharashtra is situated in Nashik which controls all Ayurvedic Colleges in the State. The long distance for colleges in Vidarbha also distances resolution of the problems faced by students within the timeframe. And they have to hop to Nashik for every contentious issue. There are a total of 16 Ayurvedic Colleges in Vidarbha with the strength of students standing at about 15,000 studying for Graduation, Post-Graduation and PhD.

    NO STIPENDS:

    The students said, “The Nagpur’s Ayurved students visit Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) and Mayo Hospital for internship. There is no independent hospital for us. Moreover, the students studying in private Ayurvedic Colleges are not being paid stipends. On the contrary, the private colleges recover Rs 2,500 from the students in the name of stipend itself. Exams are not held on time and answer papers contain several flaws even after checking by the concerned teachers,” lamented the students.

    DIVERTING TO OTHER COURSES:

    Another disappointing aspect faced by the students is that they are forced to run for other courses with no choice as the admission process never starts on time. This year, the BAMS admissions were completed in November instead of September itself and thus leaving many seats vacant in the private Ayurvedic Colleges. And more frustratingly, the Ayurved education is getting costlier day by day.

    NEW ASSOCIATION:

    The Vidarbha students have been included in the Maharashtra Ayurved Students’ Association. The Vidarbha members now want their separate Vidarbha Ayurved Students’ Association and taking measures for registration of their new Association. The aim is timely and proper justice for students of Vidarbha.

    Dr Hemant Rahangdale, President of Vidarbha Unit of Maharashtra Ayurved Students’ Association, also supported the demand for Vidarbha Ayurved University. “The Maharashtra Government should hammer out solutions for Vidarbha students who are facing financial problems and mental harassment as well. The students will get the justice only when an Ayurved University is set up in Vidarbha,” Dr Rahangdale asserted.
