Abstract:  In recent years, biotechnology played a major role in advancing the agricultural research in India. Likewise, the farmers’ rights and plant breeders’ rights have received attention of the policy makers, research organizations and development agencies. The recombinant DNA based technology (e.g. genetically modified crops) and trait-genetic use restriction technologies (e.g., terminator, verminator and traitor genes) have been employed as a part of biotechnology by public and private institutions and genetically modified crops are available for commercial exploitation. Considering present social, economical and ethical situation in India, more period would be necessary to avail advantages offered by the GATT/WTO agreement signed by the government although patent laws have been changed under TRIPS regime and quantitative restrictions for agricultural inputs have been removed.
