Message from Director


From the Desk of Director In – charge




Dear Madam/ Sir


I feel privileged to convey you my cordial and warm welcome on the website of National Institute of Homoeopathy. This autonomous organisation, presently under the Min. of AYUSH, Govt. of India, was established on 10th December, 1975 at Amherst Street, Kolkata. Later, in 1986, this Institute was shifted to the present location (in GE and JC Block) of Salt Lake, Kolkata apart from its herb garden at Kalyani, Nadia, West Bengal.


The Institute, which was dreamed to be a model of excellence and was honoured as the Regional Centre of Traditional Medicine (Homoeopathy) in South – East Asia, is now to be recognised as Institute of National Importance. The foundation of which was mainly aimed at to produce well trained graduate and postgraduate homoeopaths, to conduct research in homoeopathy, to provide medical aid through homoeopathy and to promote & develop homoeopathy, is now conducting both undergraduate (BHMS) and postgraduate (MD-Homoeopathy) courses, research works and training program for the teachers and doctors of different parts of India.


We feel proud as many alumni of this great Institute are extremely successful as practitioners, teachers, researchers or administrators.  But still it is a long way to reach the destination of this Institute. I am hopeful that with honest cooperation and positive efforts of all of us, this Institute will definitely progress significantly in near future.



Jai Hind.

With best wishes and warm regards.



Yours sincerely,

Prof. (Dr) Abhijit Chattopadhyay,

Director – In – charge, NIH
