In fact it is a matter of pride that this ancient science of well being has even been recognised by the United Nations and 21.6.2015 was celebrated as International Yoga day. As a mark of our respect to this ancient science and spiritual discipline, the Government should contemplate issuing a retrospective exemption to activities relating to Yoga under section 11C of the Central Excise Act, read with section 83 of the Finance Act, 1994.
