Coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering (CEνNS) is a neutral current process in which neutrino interacts with nucleus as a whole with nucleus undergoes small recoil energy. The CEνNS gives the highest cross-section value among the other processes involving neutrino. The clean process is predictable in the Standard Model (SM) and can be expanded further to explore new physics beyond SM (BSM). One of the BSM that still in advancement is the Exotic Neutral Current. It provides new interactions which consist of the possible bilinear combination: scalar (S), pseudoscalar (P), vector (V), axial-vector (A), and tensor (T). This general structure of interaction is broadly use in the dark matter exploration that utilize nucleus. In this study, estimation of the CEνNS differential cross-section for several nuclei are calculated in the framework of the exotic neutral current interactions. Difference of the exotic neutral current interactions to the SM is shown for different neutrino energies, to meet the criteria of coherency.
