Latest Classification of Ayurveda|CCIM : In to the Indian System Of Medicines, Ayurveda being the science of life is originally a division of Vedas itself. It is considered to be the sub-part which came into existence through Atharva-veda. Simultaneously, in some places it is also considered as a division of Rigveda too. But if we watch the real facet according to the practical aspect It is a bounded flow of knowledge passing in a single aspect from generation-to-generation continuously. This being the basic and sole reason why it is termed as a Science created by the creator of everything “Lord Brahma”. Termed as “eternal” because it was never mentioned or got in text anywhere.
The significance and essence is : Ayurveda is a winner who arrived from the long and steady run. All Ayurveda is about the emergence from the roots of Indian Culture.

Taken proper specialties in the mind while framing whole of the context and keeping the inter-disciplinary approach of the basic foundation alive. All done with the Ayurveda context is in proper coordination and inter-related to each other. Ayurveda basically is based on two streams :
- School of Medicines : Punarvasu, Attreya Sampraday
- School of Surgery : Dhanvantri Sampraday
This was the system which was proposed to us by the sages. It was to an extent limited to the scholars and their descendants. Ayurveda had no proper coverage to become a subject and reach to the verges of the world which it was worthy of. To deal with this problem hand get Ayurveda to its proper place and worthy position Govt of India came up with a very nice and logical solution :
Overall, the essence given by sages on this motive is almost every time based on the Basic principle of Ashtang Ayurveda, but now-a-days it does not seems to so much capable, because of the high level spirituality and intellect at that era. So, the Govt of India created : Central Council of India Medicine (A statutory under IMCC Act, 1970, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Department of Ayush, Government of India).
This organisation divided it into 14 further branches which works under Department of AYUSH , Government of India.
