Cereals and pulses are the major sources of protein in India because animal protein is expensive and a large part of the population is vegetarian. The meal from this new process can also be used for protein fortification programmes, which the Indian government had traditionally favored This type of program can have a substantial positive effect on the nutrition standards of vulnerable segments of the population. Providing credit and extension services and steering government nutrition program towards this technology will facilitate faster adoption. Today, Biotechnology and Information technology combined with traditional research and developed training programs for improving acceptability, efficiency and profitability. Present study was carried out to implore the soybean processor and the rural women to join and act together for a better tomorrow with an appropriate use of technology that can provide timely information about it. Soybean has recently occupied vital place in agriculture and edible oil economy in India and has made marked improvement in rural area economy and socioeconomic conditions of farmer.This technology could be great value to rural women. Women can gain the benefit of the technology by getting health benefits and self oriented employed life, with saving to decrease the information gap a technology transfer to research area with the objective of coordinate an organized process of technology transfer. Properly utilization of soybean can help India to alleviate protein malnutrition. Soybean production in India is substantial and economically significant suggest that. Severe protein malnutrition, the expense of animal protein, religious beliefs, and high population density necessitate an emphasis on increasing the vegetable sources of protein in India.
