Indian Government In Favor Of GM Seeds

As against the opinion of activists, the Indian government feels that GM seeds did not pose any harm to the environment and farmers would definitely benefit from it. The government wants that the ban put by apex court on conducting field trials must be removed. It feels that the ban would affect the developments in this field. The government stated: Introduction of biotechnology in India after rigorous testing was beneficial for the farmers and the general public. Any action which hinders such introduction of new technology cannot be termed to be in public interest On the other hand the activists feel that these trials would not only harm the farmers but also have a damaging effect on the environment in the long run. Let’s see who wins the battle- the government or the activists.
