Biotechnology Regulation in India - USDA FAS Issues A Report

Biotechnology regulation in India - USDA FAS has issued a report which discusses India's biotechnology sector, including new guidelines and protocols for conducting confined field trials and safety assessments of foods derived from biotech plants.
In November 2007, the Government of India released the National Biotech Development Strategy that suggests establishment of a National Biotech Regulatory Authority. Recently, the Genetic Engineering Approval Committee (GEAC) approved new guidelines and protocols for conducting confined field trials and safety assessments of foods derived from biotech plants. The GEAC has also granted approval for a new Bt event that has been introduced for the first time in a varietal background. Area coverage under Bt cotton, the only commercially approved biotech crop, has surged to over 80 percent of total cotton area in the last six years. All sections of this report were updated on 7/15/08. GAIN Report Number: IN8077 ; Contact: Santosh K. Singh, Santosh.Singh@usda.gov
