The key goal of the article is to examine the non-linear thermal radiation and double stratification effects on 3D MHD convective stream of nanoliquid over a non-linear stretchable surface in a porous medium. Using suitable transformations, the governing systems are converted into ODEs and are solved by using homotopy analysis method (HAM). While increasing thermal and solutal stratification parameter, the temperature decreases. The temperature enhances by raising the values of non-linear thermal radiation. The skin friction coefficient along x- and y-axis, local Nusselt number and Sherwood number are plotted for important parameter involved in the study, and the results are discussed in detail.
