The government launched the ‘Kamdhenu Deepawali 2021’ campaign that will facilitate manufacture and marketing of more than 100 crore cow-dung based earthen lamps and Laxmi-Ganesh idols.
The cow dung lamps made by cow entrepreneurs and cow owners will save the environment by providing eco-friendly alternative to chemical-based Chinese lights. Last year, crores of cow dung lamps were manufactured across India.
Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog provided training along with many volunteer organizations across India. This gave rise to large number of cow dung based start-ups. This time Kamdhenu Deepawali 2021 campaign is committed to take the initiative to higher levels. Cow entrepreneurs across India will get benefitted by this campaign. This eco-friendly campaign will also help Gaushalas to become self-sustainable.
