MP approves special Yoga commission

The state cabinet has approved the setting up of a special Yoga commission, with an aim to provide a healthy lifestyle to people.

“The cabinet gave the nod to the formation of the Madhya Pradesh Yoga Commission (MPYC) to provide a healthy lifestyle for every citizen of the state,” an official said.

The commission will conduct its activities through the state-run Maharishi Patanjali Sanskrit Sansthan, while its administrative control will be under the School Education Department.

The state government will nominate a non-government person working in the Yoga field as the MPYC chairperson, while the chairman (ex officio) of the Maharishi Patanjali Sanskrit Sansthan will be the vice-chairman.

Besides, five persons having experience in Yoga nominated by the state government will be non-government members.

The MPYC will be registered under the Societies Act. The body will have a tenure of five years.

Representatives of Additional Chief Secretary, Principal Secretary and Secretary of School Education, Higher Education, Technical Education, AYUSH, Medical Education, Social Justice, Sports, and Youth Welfare, Tribal Affairs and Scheduled Caste Development and Backward Classes Minority Welfare Department will serve as official members of the Commission.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced the constitution of a Yoga commission on International Yoga Day in June.
