History of IAVA

In 1981 during a National Symposium on Developmental Biology at Department of Zoology, University of Pune a historic decision to formulate a National Body of Veterinary Anatomists was taken by the following Veterinary Anatomists:

          1. Dr. A. M. Shrivastava, Jabalpur ............. (Ad-hoc President)

          2. Dr. R. V. Pandit, Nagpur ...................... (Ad-hoc Secretary)

          3. Dr. Panchmukhi, Gujrat

          4. Dr. Kalayan Singh Deora, Bikaner

          5. Dr. Omar, Kerala

These five Veterinary Anatomists formed the Indian Association of Veterinary Anatomists (IAVA). Architecture of the constitution of IAVA was prepared by Dr. R. V. Pandit, Nagpur and he also got this association registered in 1983 at Nagpur.

First convention of IAVA was held at Madras Veterinary College, TN in year 1983. Hisar Veterinary College organized the convention of IAVA twice at a time when the body was short of financial support and had scanty members. Then staff at Hisar Veterinary College not only successfully organized the conventions but also provided financial support and added more members to the association.

Thus going through ups and downs IAVA is a now a self sufficient body having its members across the globe.
