Government laboratories are engaged in developing customized yoga packages for Indian armed forces, parliament was informed Monday.

Defence Minister A.K. Antony identified these laboratories as the Defence Institute of Physiology and Allies Sciences (DIPAS) and the Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Allied Sciences (INMAS).
