New farm Acts aim to transform agriculture sector & raise farmers’ income

The Narendra Modi government has taken several measures to transform agriculture sector in the country and raise farmers’ income.

The
 government has recently implemented new farm Acts in this direction which include Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020 and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020.
 
The key objective of Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion & Facilitation) Act of 2020 is to eliminate middlemen who pocketed most of the farmers’ productive incomes. It also aims at ending the monopoly of buyers’ cartels that fleeced farmers’ income in the mandis.
 
Through the path breaking historic reforms, the farmers in the country have been for the first time, given the freedom to sell their produce wherever they could demand a better price. The three crucial farmer-oriented and progressive legislations allow farmers to trade their produce online.
 
Above all, the new legislations do not change the existing system of MSP and Mandis in any way, leaving the prerogative of choice solely on the farmers. Setting up of APMCs are controlled by the State Governments and the new Central legislations only give the farmers free and viable options to market and sell their produce. And all this comes with an added advantage of sufficient safeguard mechanism which can be accessed by the farmers right at the sub divisional level ensuring dispute resolution both accessible and cost effective.
