The biotechnology department has scrapped a proposed project to analyse the toxic effects of nanoparticles, as it found no Indian research agency competent to undertake the study.
In 2008, the ministry of science and technology had advertised its plans in leading science journals to fund a comprehensive study to estimate the toxicological effects of nanoparticles.
"We were not satisfied with the proposals that we received," said a senior official in the science ministry, who didn't want to be identified.
"However, there are several research initiatives going on that use a variety of nanoparticles derived from several materials, beyond gold and silver. So these groups have been asked to look into toxicological aspects too," he added. "But one comprehensive project is, as of now, out."
