NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN- GM CROPS













Some News Report says:

Bio-Technology Regulatory Authority Bill-2009 - Draft Bill to be tabled in Indian Parliament this session.

Drafted by Department of Bio-Technology of the Ministry of Science & Technology.

Anybody opposing GM food without ‘proper scientific  data’ can be jailed for six months to a maximum of 1  year along with a fine of Rs. 2 lakhs.
Right to Information Act will not apply to information relating to GM research etc.

Department of Bio-Technology can over rule the decision  of the States on GM Technology.

  1. This bill is bizarre. India is a democracy and you cant force something like this on people. Probably the next step in line would be punishment to those farmers who decline to buy BT seeds and works with the natural ones.
