Kerala Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (KINFRA) is launching a project “KINFRA Global Ayurveda Village” which attempts to incorporate most modern scientific developments in diagnostic aspects of treatment with classical Ayurveda premises. It aims to bench- mark the project with the Global Centers of traditional medicine and develops it as Integrated Centre of Excellence in Ayurveda. Government of Kerala proposes to develop this project with a motive to transform Kerala as the World Capital of Ayurveda at the time when centre is keen to showcase Ayurveda, yoga, and related products as a part of its ‘Make in India ‘initiative.
Though Ayurveda is well-known as an alternate treatment methodology; the issues faced by the sector have never been addressed methodically, which includes lack of infrastructure for skills development of professionals, Standardization, Documentation, International recognition, Global Acceptance, Marketing, Entrepreneurship development, use of modern technologies in diagnosis, Research and Development, etc.
Plans are up to fill this gap through this upcoming Ayurveda project of KINFRA. The project is planned to be set up in two sites.
Site -1 at Veiloor Village, Chempakamangalam, Thonnakkal, Trivandrum in an area of 7.48 acres is 33 km from airport and
Site – 2 at Ayiroor Village, Varkala, Trivandrum in an area of 63.25 acres is 55 km from airport. It is blessed with natural greenery and water frontage of 1.25 Km which is one of the best tourist destination centers in the tourist map of India.
The project is estimated to incur about Rs 152.50 Crore, including the cost of land. The construction of compound wall work for the first site at Thonnakkal is completed. The project cost of the second site to be developed at Ayiroor village, Varkala is Rs 120 Crore. The land acquisition process for site 2 is in progress.
