This Trust “Ayurved Sevak Sangha” was constituted by kabiraj Raghunath Maity, a well known Ayurvedic Physician, a freedom fighter & a social worker of the contai area, in1944 with a view to perform activities under the common banner of “Vaidyaka Pathsala”, for serving the society through intensive propagation of the Ayurvedic system of Medicine. It is a benevolent, apolitical & non-profit organizasion. It is initially constituted with the eleven persons as its executive members including President, Vice-President, Secretary & treasurer, from different profesionals. This ‘Sangha’ has at present, more than two hundreds members from different speetrum of society.
After independence, Kabiraj Maity dedicated himself to start an Ayurved College at Contai in November, 1949 under the supervision & management of ‘Ayurved Sevak Sangha’- which was registered later on 3rd August 1956 as a society. In the beginning the college was running a course titled ‘ASF’ with a hospital facilities of 12 beds with the affilation of “Paschim Banga Ayurveda Parishad” (The registration Authority for Ayurved practice in West Bengal). The course continued upto the session of 1979-80 before it was discontinued because of the starting of CCIM affiliated ‘BAMS’ course throughout the country. Since then this ‘trust’ has maintained the hospital service in regular manner. Again in 2013, ‘Ayurved Sevak Sangha’ after its long continous effort was able to start the ‘BAMS’ course in this college and running it successfully since than.
‘Ayurved Sevak Sangha’ is a very active body, constantly engaging itself for the development of this college as well as Ayurved as a whole.
