New Delhi, December 10:

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).

Both work under the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO).

"These laboratories are primarily focussed on military physiology and radiation biology which includes human performance and enhancement under different environments," the minister said in a written statement.
