India is among the first countries in the world to have legislated on Farmers’ Rights which came into effect as Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmers’ Rights Act in 2001 to protect the intellectual property rights of plant breeders and to stimulate investments in research and development of new plant varieties. India’s experience in the wake of its international contribution to the negotiations on farmers’ rights, the expertise in the field of bio-diversity and agriculture in India has augmented her to take a lead role in implementing these rights. This article presents few case studies on farmer’s rights. The approach is a focussed participatory research in action (PLA), also called Participatory Research Analysis (PRA).The Micro-research will be a Case Study in two villages using an evaluative methodology. These case studies provide a success story and an overview of farmers’ rights in India that arrays opinion of over forty stakeholders (marginal farmers) on the prospects of the realization of farmer’s rights.
