In spite of global augmentation of by product value to over come the cost benefit ratio, our country India has not kept pace in sericultural fronts. The by-products usually felt as wastes, can put to better use in producing the valuable products and thereby catapult the industry to a more profitable and economically viable spot. Since old days, Ayurveda and other literature have claimed the different medicinal properties against scertain serious diseases. Various researches have been conducted in last decades on different medicinal plants and insects. The present review highlighted the potentiality of different medicinal properties of mulberry and silkworms. Therefore, the earlier concept of sericulture to produce only silk, now has changed into the functional sericulture of a new paradigm to relieve the patients as well as to increase the farmer's income dramatically. Those functional sericulture aspects are likely to be further developed and finally reborn into a real biotechnology-based sericulture in the future.
