Ahead of International Yoga Day on June 21, the premier Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has approved a short-term course in yoga. The proposal to introduce three short-term courses in Indian culture and yoga was first floated in 2015. Following various communications from the HRD Ministry the University Grants Commission (UGC), JNU had then circulated a draft of three courses among its various schools and departments for their feedback. The proposal was rejected by the Academic Council, in November 2015.
