In an interview with Mr. pradip Dave, President, PMFAI, he has mentioned various issues which pose a threat to the Indian Pesticide Industry. The Central Insecticides Board (CIB), a Government of India body, has been issuing registrations for import of readymade pesticide formulations without registering the technicals. This presents a great danger for the country as even the government would not be in a position to know where the raw material comes from and whether it is toxic, sub-standard or expired. And, there will not be any pesticide manufacturing activity in the country and manufacturers will end up becoming re-packers.
He also raised concern about the ban on endosulfan. If the ban on endosulfan gets regulated the Indian pesticide industries will suffer a lot.
