The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Front Page - Ashish Chauhan

Ahmed­abad: Star­tups focused on “com­mer­cial­is­ing” cow by-prod­ucts like dung and urine in ad­di­tion to dairy could get up to 60% of their ini­tial in­vest­ment as gov­ern­ment fund­ing, the chair­man of the newly es­tab­lished Rashtriya Kamd­henu Aayog has said.

“We will en­cour­age youths to go for cow-based en­trepreneur­ship and earn not only from prod­ucts like milk and ghee, but also by-prod­ucts like urine and dung that can be used for medic­i­nal and farm pur­poses,” Val­labh Kathiria, cow board chair­man told TOI. Kathiria has been meet­ing aca­demi­cians and stu­dents of En­trepreneur­ship De­vel­op­ment In­sti­tute of India to frame strate­gies to at­tract youths to be en­trepreneur­s.
