Abstract: India is one of the mega biodiverse countries of the world with a vast resource of traditional knowledge related to her genetic wealth. She has also made rapid progress in modern technologies, specially biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. This paper highlights the efficacy of the methods of protecting traditional knowledge internationally, and in India; and analyses the new provisions introduced in Indian statute laws for preservation and promotion of traditional technology and encouragement for investment in modern biotechnology. It is seen that while there has been movement in enactment of legislations, specially in the post-TRIPS Agreement era, there are latches and ambiguities which need to be clarified. The problems of unclear definitions, overlapping and sometimes contradictory provisions in the new laws, when rectified, would lead to stronger protection for traditional knowledge and genetic resources, and a generally more robust patent regime in India.
