Politics is at its peak in the Farmers Bill in the world as a whole. The Government argues that farmers will benefit from this bill, so the opposition is actively criticizing the Government that the Government is destroying farmers’ rights.
In reality, the real game that is going on in this entire problem is the MSP of MSP, i.e., the minimum price of help that farmers pay for their crops.
The Government has also, in a panic, raised the MSP of six rabi crops, but the matter has been slowly catching up in return for peace. What’s the real game of this MSP and Procurement Rate strategy. After all, let’s see what the heck this MSP and the acquisition process is.
MSP (Minimum support price)
is the minimum price at which the Government is willing to buy the whole quantity of grain produced by the producers. The minimum price of help shall be declared by the Government on the advice of the Agricultural Costs and Prices Commission twice a year during the Rabi and Kharif Season.
The MSP of the crop is fixed in such a way that farmers would have the minimum cost that has been set in every situation.
Procurement price i is the price at which the Government buys the product after it has been harvested. The critical difference between the selling price and the MSP is that the MSP is announced before sowing, whereas the inventory is announced after harvesting.
In fact, from 1968 to 1969, MSP and Procurement began to be deemed the same. No separate procurement agreements have been made. The MSP itself was known to be an acquisition.
Farmers who have been stealing for 70 years Now, since the Farmers Bill, there is a noise that injustice is being done to farmers. Still, since 1969, MSP and Procurement have been combined into one, with the effect that crop before and after harvesting. No one has even dreamed of raising the cost of growing it—neither the former governments nor the new governments.
The main explanation for this is the lack of an MSP scheme outside the industry. There is no big issue with the three laws enacted by the nation, but there is no allowance for any other method to be equal to the market.
That’s the root of the real challenge. If a private player reaches this area, the MSP should also be configured for this to happen. If the farmer places Rs 1925 per quintal of wheat on the shelf, the same provision should also be made for private companies. Which is not listed in the bill, and that’s why the farmer is on the lane.
