A strategy for development and protection of intellectual property in Indian agriculture

State Bank of India Monthly Review 36(11): 551-561

A strategy for development and protection of intellectual property in Indian agriculture

A brief reference is made to the nature and significance of intellectual property, its relevance to Indian agriculture, the need for its protection, the role of ICAR and various imperatives for development and protection of the Indian intellectual property in the context of emerging scenarios in world agriculture and world trade are made. Such a discussion is required because, it is noted, that intellectual property in India has been limited to patents, and to monopoly abuses of such patents.
