Regulating Transgenic Plants in India

This article argues for viewing the issue of regulation of transgenic plants in India from both the economic and biosafety angles. The article argues that transgenic products could meet with resistance from the market place in India due to complex patterns of demand amongst farmers for new cultivars. This aspect coupled with the policy and law framework have the potential of providing adequate checks and balances on oligopolistic tendencies of biotech companies, transnational or domestic. Also discussed are certain lacunae in India's policy-legal framework which need to be addressed for converting the potential into realisable results.
