QA Department

Ensuring good quality is an integral component of manufacturing Ayurvedic Products at Arya Vaidya Sala, Kottakkal. The classical Ayurveda texts have prescribed methods for ensuring good quality manufacturing. Additionally, the principles and tools of modern science are incorporated in the process.

The Ayurvedic products produced at the three manufacturing units of Arya Vaidya Sala go through rigorous quality checks at the Quality Assurance(QA) Department and the Quality Control (QC) Cell. The QA Department is a modern laboratory where modern infrastructure and scientific skill are available for employing scientific testing methods. The QC Cell consists of physicians who check the classical organoleptic characteristics. The QA Department is equipped to test the quality of both raw materials and finished products. For this purpose, the quality standard parameters and analytical procedures prescribed by the Bureau of Indian Standards and the Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of the Government of India are accepted. The expertise available with Arya Vaidya Sala’s Center for Medicinal Plants Research (CMPR) located in Kottakkal and its Herb Garden also helps in this activity.


  • The raw materials, on arrival and on approval, are received and used in production. 
  • Those items, which fail the test, are rejected.
  • In the case of finished products, the standard parameters and analytical procedures prescribed in the Pharmacopoeial Standards for Ayurvedic Formulations of the Government of India are implemented.
  • The Quality Certificate issued from the QA Department forms a part of the batch manufacturing record of each batch of medicine.
  • This procedure is an inherent aspect of the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) followed in the production units.
  • The organoleptic characteristics of the finished products are ascertained by the expert physicians of The QC Cell.

Thus, the quality of the ayurvedic products manufacured by Arya Vaidya Sala is ensured by adopting a comprehensive approach comprising both classical and modern practices.
