We have the same tired non-regulation of GMOs in India that is replete with the most serious conflicts of interest that make their regulation impossible; a 3-in-1 embodiment of promoter, funder and regulator. And to provide the required support structure to this corrupted process, our agri-institutions with a group of public-sector scientists (retired and current), together, a powerful lobbying force, underpin the push for the wholesale introduction of GMOs and their emerging ‘Avatars’ into Indian agriculture. It is a measure of their mindset that Bt cotton is promoted as an ‘outstanding success’ in order to justify other Bt crops.

Abstract


We have the same tired non-regulation of GMOs in India that is replete with the most serious conflicts of interest that make their regulation impossible; a 3-in-1 embodiment of promoter, funder and regulator. And to provide the required support structure to this corrupted process, our agri-institutions with a group of public-sector scientists (retired and current), together, a powerful lobbying force, underpin the push for the wholesale introduction of GMOs and their emerging ‘Avatars’ into Indian agriculture. It is a measure of their mindset that Bt cotton is promoted as an ‘outstanding success’ in order to justify other Bt crops.
