India is the second largest nation in terms of population, and seventh largest in terms of area which enables us to think toward more productivity on available resources. India is agriculture based economy and more than half of population depends on agriculture for living. Biotechnology in this scenario provides us an option to increase agriculture yield on available area, but are we prepare to bring paradigm shift? This looks difficult after analyzing current situation of GM Mustard, however this is not new, earlier our scientists developed GM Brinjal, but it was put on halt by Regulatory bodies unlike BT Cotton. So what we need to do? Should we stop development of GM crops? specially the edible ones or are there any measures to implement agri practices of GM food crops. When we see GM Cotton it looks apparent that we do not have any problem because BT gene is not entering our body and this would be the reason for success story of GM cotton. In this article we will look at the points from developers, anti-GMO and biotech regulators to understand situation of agribiotech in a country like India which is at 100th position out of 119 countries of Global Hunger Index 2017.
