The Society “Udayabhanu” was set up way back in 1994, by Commander P.C. Acharya, a retired Executive Officer & Flying Pilot in Indian Navy, mainly with a view to extending the time tested benefits of Ayurvedic treatment to the mass.
The Society has been successfully undertaking various programmes not only for Ayurvedic medicine / treatment but also for other social objectives namely, Ayurvedic Awareness Camp, Asthma Awareness Camp, Juice Therapy, Computer Awareness Programme, Book Bank, Public Library, Self employment Awareness workshop, D.P.E.P Cultural Programme etc.
The Society took a major step forward by introducing the 1st Mobile Ayurvedic Dispensary at Mumbai followed by the 2nd such Mobile dispensary on 26th March 2001 at Bisoi, Odisha and one Ambulance at Cuttack, Odisha.
Being convinced with the objective of the Society, the elite people of the Society associated themselves with the activities and extended their support and guidance. Sri Eknath Gaikwad, the then Hon’bIe Minister of Health, Govt of Maharashtra kindly inaugurated the 2nd Mobile dispensary of the Society.
The Hon’bIe commissioner of Income Tax, Cuttack, after examining all relevant information and facts, have granted necessary exemption Under Section 80G of the Income tax Act 1961 in the hand of the donors. Such exemption, though remains valid up to 2004-05 Assessment year, is expected to be renewed for years to come.
