Unani Medical College in Kashmir on 50:50 basis with an estimated cost of Rs. 25.80 crore and Rs. 32.50 crore respectively.

He appreciated the role played by Principal Govt. Unani Medical College, Dr Samia Rashid and Director ISM, J&K Dr Mohan Singh and for their untiring efforts for this noble cause.

Dr Mohan Singh, Director ISM J&K while deliberating the issue said that Unani is an age old and time-tested system of medicine based purely on Unani Principles and holistic approach towards patient management. It is very popular among masses in the Sub-Continent in general and Kashmir valley in particular. Unani system of medicine is more prevalent and acceptable among masses of Kashmir division, Chenab Valley and Districts of Rajouri & Poonch in the UT of J&K. He further added that the achievement was made possible due to the kind patronage of the Financial Commissioner, Health & Medical Education who provided all the requisite support in making this dream come true. He appreciated concerned officers/officials of the ISM Department who played the role in taking this project to the logical end. He hoped that two AYUSH colleges (Ayurvedic/Unani) established in J&K will soon top the charts for being the best colleges in India for imparting quality education in Ayurveda and Unani.
