New Delhi The Indian Insititute of Technology, Delhi, has received about 50 proposals for research on benefits of cow milk and urine, the government informed Parliament on Wednesday.

The proposals from different academic and research institutions were made under the Scientific Validation and Research on Panchgavya (SVAROP).

“The Department of Science and Technology has constituted a National Steering Committee to initiate a national programme on SVAROP,” Chowdhary said.
