AGRICULTURAL LAWS- OISINI PODDAR AT LEXCLIQ
Loksabha passed two controversial laws on September 17, 2020. Farmers produced trade in 2020, launched a bill, and signed a farmer (delegation and protection) agreement on the 2020 price insurance and farmer services bill. Rajasaba has previously passed a mandatory commodities bill. I received my eyelashes. People in Punjab and Haryana are protesting to bring the audience back. Essentials Amendment Bill: The 1955 Central Commodity Bill empowers the central government to control the production of essentials and distribute the supply of essentials. Farmer produce trade and commerce bill:This bill give the power to the farmer to sell their produce in the Mandi Or aagriculture produce marketing committies who in term are regulate by different state legislation.
Farmer (empowerment and production) agreement of price assurance and farm services bill: under this bill farmers given permission for contract farming. This bill empower the farmer to engage in agri business firm, processor, wholesalers, etc. For farm service and sales of future farming produce at a mutually agreed rumunerative price. These bills as a bane:As per the government statement these bills make a farmer easier to sell his produce directly to private buyer and can sell his produce anywhere and to anyone he want to sell. However, farmers practicing large-scale farming are refused to accept these bills for many reasons, and they consider it bad for them. As we know, 90% of Indians are engaged in agriculture and most of them are market dependent. Therefore, they believe that crop failures are driving them into debt and it may not be possible to secure competitive prices for their produce. They felt that the government had handed them over to a large corporation. As the government said, a farmer can sell his produce to anyone he wants, but the main question is how a small farmer can store his produce. And how do they have access to store facilities and shipping costs? Also, is he not sure if the company will give him a reasonable price for his products? Thus, many questions arise before them.
Also, what happens if a farmer who is engaged in contract farming becomes a dispute after contract farming? Therefore, it will be difficult for farmers to deal with them. Therefore, agriculture is unsustainable and if farmers are suffering from business, they may eventually be forced to commit suicide, putting them in a difficult position. The point is that in a country where 86% of farmers have only 1 or 2 hectares of land, the product can be taken far away. They clearly put the farmers in the hands of private parties and there are no safeguards or disciplinary rules regarding pricing. Also, it's not clear how this private marketing system actually works.
