"In this connection, the government is in the process of identifying suitable land in the country," Minister of State for Ayush Shripad Yesso Naik said in a written reply.

For export promotion of traditional medicines, every year the country participates in leading traditional medicine exhibitions such as Vita foods at Geneva and Supply Side West and Engredea in the US to showcase Ayush products at a global platform.

The Botanical Survey of India (BSI), an organization under the environment ministry, has been carrying out survey and documentation of all plant resources of the country, including medicinal and aromatic plants and herbs.

The National Medicinal Plants Board (NMPB) of the ministry of Ayush has been implementing the centrally sponsored scheme of "National Mission on Medicinal Plants" since 2008-09. The scheme is now part of the National Ayush Mission (NAM), Naik added.
