Post bifurcation, of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh into Telangana and Andhra States, the Ayush department in Telangana is stalled and has become defunct having no bureaucrats to carry out the various administrative functions in the department.
In view of this, the Ayush college principals and aspiring Ayush candidates in Telangana fear that the counseling process for admissions into Ayush stream of medicine for the current year may be delayed.
At present the post of commissioner, additional commissioner or deputy commissioner in the Ayush department are vacant. Because of this the administrative works are totally stalled as there is no one to head the department to guide the lower rung of employees.
Already the Andhra Pradesh government had issued notification and has asked the students to get their certificates verified by August 7, while the Telangana government is awaiting the Supreme Court order for conducting the admission counseling.
In Telangana, there is one Homoeopathy Medical College, one Unani and two Ayurveda colleges. [Source]
