Dissent in Indian committee on GM crop moratorium

One member of the six-member Indian expert committee appointed by the Supreme Court that recommended a moratorium on field trials of genetically modified crops has severely criticised the reports. The member, Dr R S Paroda, who is a former director general of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, has stated that the other five members of the Technical Experts Committee (TEC) submitted their final report without his knowledge or consent (Agrow No 669, p 22). He has submitted a dissenting report to the TEC recommendations.
