The combined discipline of Yoga & Naturopathy (Y&N) constitutes one of the official indigenous medical systems under the Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa-Rigpa, and Homoeopathy (AYUSH), Government of India (GoI). The GoI has recently regulated all the systems under AYUSH, except Yoga & Naturopathy, through the National Commission for Indian System of Medicine (NCISM) Bill, 2020 . However, Y&N has been left out from the NCISM Bill, despite the recommendations of the Department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on the National Commission for Indian System of Medicine Bill, 2019 [2: p 20], and NITI Aayog [3: p 15]. On the contrary, GoI has proposed a board for regulating Y&N without defining its statutory value or timeline.
