The institute – which will be established at a cost of more than Rs 110 crore – will collaborate and coordinate with all stakeholders and act as a catalyst to enhance research and capacity building in the ‘One Health’ approach across the country.

The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of the project to reduce the pollution of Nag River in Nagpur.
