Monsanto Pulled to Court by India for "Biopiracy":

Monsanto Pulled to Court by India for "Biopiracy":

“The ‘alleged violation’ referred to by NBA is based on a complaint filed by Environment Support Group before the Karnataka Biodiversity Board on 15 February 2011 (copy attached). Subsequently, the Board thoroughly and systematically investigated the matter and submitted in its 28 May 2011 letter to NBA that ‘six local varieties for development of Bt Brinjal’ have been accessed in Karnataka by M/s Mahyco/Monsanto and their collaborators ‘without prior approval from State Biodiversity Board/National Biodiversity Authority’. Furnishing a variety of documents in support of its contention, the Board has sought ‘further action’ by the Authority on the basis of ESG’s complaint.”
