While the AYUSH ministry is the nodal agency for the International Yoga Day celebrations, the Ministry of Tourism is also playing its part.

Besides propelling its missions abroad to organise simultaneous sessions on Sunday to coincide with the Rajpath programme, the ministry has also executed the entire outdoor branding campaign across India and abroad. Many officials from the Tourism Ministry have given their names for the mass yoga session at Rajpath, including Tourism Secretary Lalit K Panwar himself, who claims to be a yoga practitioner for the last 36 years, “ever since his IAS days”.
