Modi govt gives big news to farmers, support price of wheat, chickpea and mustard rises sharply

Two bills involving farmers have been passed in Parliament. According to sources, the central government has decided to increase the MSP of Ravi Pak. However, controversy over MSPs continues in many parts of the country. Farmers from UP, Haryana and Punjab are protesting.

In fact, the decision not to fix the MSP in two bills related to agriculture has angered farmers. Prime Minister Modi said that the MSP system will continue and government procurement of crops will also continue.

Let me tell you, the new bill allows farmers to sell their crops anywhere. In which the market will depend on the yard. However, Punjab-Haryana has the largest network of market yards. MSP is also awkward against farmers. Which is being protested.

MSP of Rs 25,000 crore was paid against Rs 2460 crore. Tomar said Rs 1.13 lakh crore, including farmers, wheat, paddy, pulses and oilseeds, was paid as MSP in Ravi 2020 this year.

What support prices work

The Central Government announces the first support price on the support price of agriculture and on the recommendations received for that value and on the sowing of certain crops. This gives farmers confidence that the government will give them a fixed price even if the price of their crop falls in the market. Under which the government is trying to compensate them.

Why MSP is required

However, not all governments benefit farmers. Currently, the worst situation is in Bihar and Madhya Pradesh. Where farmers do not get MSP. Even so, the Shanta Kumar Committee had made its report that only 6 per cent farmers could avail the benefit of MSP. That is, 94 percent of farmers are dependent on Martek.

Support for determining MSP

  • The Commission on Agricultural Expenditure and Value recommends a minimum support value,
  • He decides the price keeping in mind certain things. What is the cost of production.
  • -How much has the price of tools used in crop production changed?
  • -What is the current price in the market
  • -Demand and revenue status
  • -How is the situation at national and international level
