Centre to states Adopt Yoga in school syllabusNEW DELHI: The Centre has asked the state governments to adopt Yoga as part of their school syllabus so that willing students can take it as a subject.

Minister of State for AYUSH Shripad Yesso Naik said in Lok Sabha the letter to the states favoring adoption of Yoga as part of the school syllabus was sent by the HRD Ministry so that those students who wished to enroll themselves could take it, though it will not be a compulsory subject.

“We hope that Yoga will be part of the school curriculum from the next academic session,” he said during Question Hour.

Naik said Yoga has been made compulsory for police personnel and plans are afoot to make it compulsory also for defense personnel.

“A scheme titled ‘Yoga Training for Police Personnel’ has been initiated by the Ministry,” he said.

The Minister said the government has succeeded in adoption of June 21 as the International Day of Yoga. The 1st International Day of Yoga was celebrated in the country in a grand manner on June 21 2015, which was celebrated across the globe involving 192 countries.

“Arrangements for celebrating 2nd International Day of Yoga on June 21, 2016 have also started,” he said.–PTI
