Dear Sir/Madam

 

We are in receipt of representation from Department on Patent Applications in Agrochemicals/Pesticide Sector leading to erode vision of Make in India & Atmanirbhar in Agrochemical Sector.

 

As per the representaiton

 

  1. India is signatory to Patent protection regime under WTO which has become operational in the country from the year 2005.   
  2. Under Patent regime an inventor get 20 years protection for new invention.
  3. Though  only new  inventions are expected  to be covered under Patent  regime for 20 years’ protection,  as per their understaidng several  frivolous  applications are  being  filed  to  Patent Pesticides  Formulations  products  based  on  Off  Patented  Active  Ingredients  (Technical Grade Pesticides) or on those Active Ingredients which are nearing to  end its  Patent period.
  4. Applications for such patents are being made for solo and  combination formulation products.
  5. Granting patents for such  Pesticides Formulation products based on off  patent  molecules  or  soon to  be  patent  expiring  molecules,  will  result in  extending protection for another 20 years  for the  Formulation products, which is not  good
  • In  the interest  of  India
  • It’s   Farming  community  and 
  • Growth  of  its  indigenous  Agrochemicals / Pesticides  manufacturing  sector.
  1. Such Formulations  for  sole and  combination  formulations  does  not  involve  any  significant innovations or  substantial  investments
  2. Hence  Patents  should  be restricted  to  only  for new inventions of Active Ingredients.

 

The  above current situation  will prevent  Generic entries affecting the interests of  Indian Agrochemicals  Industries,  particularly  MSMEs in  Agrochemicals sector, who will not be able to  manufacture  and sell  these  Formulation  products.

 

Generic  Agrochemicals /  Pesticides constitutes 75% of Global Agrochemical market, which provides opportunities for the country, as in  Generic agrochemical  production India is  at leading position.

 

India Farmers will  be  the biggest  beneficiaries  from  early  introduction  of Generic Agrochemicals / Pesticides as Generics pesticides formulations are the cheaper by 50% to 80%. Improved availability and affordability of these products will help raising Farmer income. Majority of Farmer in India is small land holding Farmer from 1-5 acres of agricultural land.

 

As patents products come at a premium price and  often not  accessible to  Farmers in  India, it is necessary  for  Government to  ensure  that  Frivolous  Patents are not  granted for Pesticides Formulations  products  based  on  the  Off  Patented  molecules  (active ingredients) or  the molecules  (active ingredients) nearing to end its patent period.

 

In view of above representaiton we seek your reply for onward communicaiton to Department.

 

We request you to send your reply on deepak.gupta@chemexcil.gov.in; pwdd@chemexcil.gov.in on or before 13th February-2021 by 2.00pm

 

Thanks and Regards
