The stepwise regulatory procedures for the development and commercialization of transgenic crops is as follows*:

 

 

 

 

 

 

IBSC

To note, approve, recommend & to seek approval of RCGM

 
 


 

Applicant

 

IBSC

 

RCGM

To note, approve, recommend generation of appropriate biosafety & agronomic data

 

 MEC

Visit multi location and large scale field trial sites, analyze data,  inspect facilities,  recommend safe and agronomically viable transgenics to GEAC through RCGM

 

RCGM

 

MEC

 

GEAC

To approve for large scale use, open release in to environment

 

 ICAR Trials

To generate complete agronomic data and to recommend for commercial release of GM crops

Release for commercial agriculture

 

 
 

 

 

 


 

 

*This is an indicative flow chart. Applicants may check up with competent authorities on the procedures presently in vogue based on the gene/background/intended use of the transgenic crop.

 

 

 

At present the protocol followed for approval of transgenic crops is as follows (based on the recommendations of sub-committee on Bt-cotton and other issues under the chairmanship of Dr. C.D.Mayee):
