Kamdhenu Project is an initiative of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) which aims at preservation, breed improvement and creating awareness regarding use of Indian breed of cows. Apart from social and spiritual initiative, it is more of a scientific research project where many innovations are being conducted both at national and international levels. It includes adopting organic farming techniques, creates awareness to adopt innovative agricultural practices to benefit consumer as well as environment. Though started on small scale, this project has slowly turned new grounds for research and breed improvement, not only for Sansthan, but world at large. It has come a long way since then as the program has gained traction amongst scientist, agriculturist and political class. It has not only addressed professionals, researchers but also enthusiasts all over the world.

It was 3rd convention (Agrivision 2018) held at National Agriculture Science Complex, Indian Council of Agriculture Research, Pusa Campus, New Delhi on March 24, 2018.

Agriculture minister of Govt. of India was also chief guest on March 24 for the same.
