This study emphasizes  the upshots of non-linear radiation and electrical resistance heating on a three dimensional Jeffrey dissipating nanoflow in view of convective surface conditions. The initial set of nonlinear dimensional boundary layer equations are transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations with suitable similarity variables and then solved by shooting method using Mathematica software. For various representative quantities, the behavior of the momentum, energy and species diffusion along with engineering quantities near the surface are figured for different estimations of the fluid properties. The examination of the present outcomes has been made with the existing work which is in good agreement. This study helps in understanding that the heat transfer rate is predominant in the non-linear radiation compared to linear radiation. Jeffrey fluid model has the capacity of describing the stress relaxation property, that usually viscous fluid lags and this is exhibited clearly in the study. Shear stress descends as the fluid pertinent parameter ascends.
