Rajasthan is experiencing a rise in applicants to numerous colleges as Ayurveda degrees become more well-known and in more demand. The growing interest in the college's BAMS courses, according to Prof. Mahesh Dixit, principal of Madan Mohan Malviya Government Ayurvedic College in Udaipur, is due to the university's affordability since the course costs are considerably cheaper than those of other colleges.
“Professional choices for BAMS graduates may appear limited at first, with options such as becoming a medical officer or founding a private clinic. But as work as an assistant professor, pharmaceutical company executive, researcher and even completing Ph.D studies.” - Dixit.
Dr, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan Rajasthan Ayurved University has 125 seats available for Bachelor of Ayurveda Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) programme, all of which get filled every year, said officials. There is a call for more sheets to match the increasing demand.
After Covid outbreak, foreign countries have shown increased interest in Ayurveda, Pramod Kumar Mishra, head of the department of Kayachikitsa at Dr. Sarvepalli Radakrishnan Rajasthan Ayurveda University said.
“The appeal of Ayurveda stems from its natural approach and absence of side effects, making it an appealing alternative for treating chronic disease. There is an increased demand for panchakarma,kayachikitsa and surgery courses.” - Mishra

The combination of rising demand, expanding job prospects, and Ayurveda’s holistic and natural approach suggests a promising future for the subjects.” - Mishra
