It is necessary to strengthen moral and ethical values of our society in order to establish just social order. There is no better way of doing this than propagation of Vedic Wisdom including knowledge of astrology. The council was therefore formed in November 1984 with a goal to establish an All India Body and to ensure progress in astrological studies.
