India has extended support to the Eastern University of Sri Lanka. It has given a grant of 105 million rupees to the Siddha Faculty of the University.

 Under the grant assistance, India has supplied laboratory equipment, computers, reference books, anatomical models and charts, a bus and a jeep for the use in the Siddha Faculty. The Faculty has been equipped to carry out research and study in the field of Siddha.

Giving his views on the occasion, India’s High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Ashok K. Kantha said the successful completion of the project has a deep symbolic value as the traditional knowledge of Auyurveda and Siddha is an important part of the heritage of the common civilization of both countries.
