Title: The Indian Plant Variety Protection Act Beneficiaries: The Indian Farmer or the Corporate Seed Company?
Authors: Chandrashekaran, Shanti
Vasudev, Sujata
Issue Date: Nov-2002
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: The Indian Plant Variety Protection (PVP) Act (2001) covers several issues relating to farmers’ rights and the protection and registration of new plant varieties. It is a sui generis system developed after years of deliberation and offers tremendous freedom to farmers to continue saving and reusing seeds from their farm produce. As Indian farmers fall into diverse socio-economic classes, all of them will not benefit equally from the PVP Act. PVP issues relating to farmers’ rights are discussed vis-à-vis their role in biodiversity conservation and plant breeding. Possible solutions to mitigate the drawbacks of long-term protection to farmers are also discussed.
