'Indian IP and liabilities law barrier to pharma R&D investment' 10.5.2018 General News
India's intellectual property regulations and liabilities laws pose a major barrier to foreign companies, specially from the US, that prevents them from increasing their footprint in the country's huge market, pharma sector leaders have said. Andrew Plump, chief medical and scientific officer of Takeda Pharmaceuticals, a major Japanese drugmaker, said his company has a very limited presence in India. "But it is open to increase its footprint in India, with the improvement in IP protection laws and those related to liabilities," Plump said. "I think more and more there's an intent in India to try to open up its doors. I think if that happens, and if it facilitates entry of innovative patent protected pharmaceuticals you will see value driven companies coming into India," Plump told PTI on the sidelines of the 12th annual biopharma and healthcare summit here. "Historically it (IP sector regulations and liabilities law) has been not just a hindrance but a barrier and impediment (for the .

Domestic workers, Gender Equality, and Women Empowerment 26.4.2018 General News
Domestic work has been one of the oldest jobs in the world. Due to various reasons like drought, lack of agriculture, lack of employment option, land acquisition in the name of development, displacement, harassment of Dalit class, lack of basic amenities like medical facilities, water, etc., people migrate from the villages to the cities.These migrants are mostly poor and disadvantaged and they get work in the unorganized sector in the city.

Delhi HC order may hit agri investment: Seeds body 13.4.2018 General News
Seed industry body FSII today said investment in agri-biotech sector could be affected following a recent Delhi High Court order dismissing US-based Monsanto's plea to enforce the patent for its BT cotton seeds in India. "While we respect the court's judgement, this order will have wider implications beyond the seed and agri biotech sector," Federation of Seed Industry of India (FSII) said in a statement. If the patent protection granted to a biotech trait under the Patent Act is superseded by the protection granted to the plant under the PPV&FR Act upon the insertion of the trait into the plant, FSII said, no organisation will invest money in inventing new traits for agriculture. Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmers' Rights (PPV&FR) Act was passed by Parliament in 2001 and an authority has been set up for compliance of provisions of this law. A trait, whether GM or non-GM, becomes useful for farmers or consumers only when it has been incorporated in the plant, it ...
