Putting Farmers First 2020 Booklet Punjabi
After the new farm ordinances were brought in, there are reports from potato-growing areas that during June-July,
bulk buyers bought potatoes directly from cold storage by giving higher prices to the farmers. As the farmers
got a higher price for potatoes outside, the farmers who had gone to the mandis to sell their potatoes too got
higher prices, due to the pressure of higher market price outside. Similarly, there are reports from Madhya Pradesh
and Rajasthan that the oil mills there have purchased mustard by giving 20-30% more directly to the farmers. In
states like Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and West Bengal, pulses are produced in abundance.
In these states, farmers have directly received 15-25% higher prices compared to last year.”
“The rules had a lot of restrictions on where the farmer could sell the crop and to whom. We showed the
willingness to remove injustice that was being done to the farmers for decades.
Farmers can now sell their crop to whoever they want, wherever they want and whenever they want. Now
a farmer can take his crop to any state of the country and sell it. Also, grains or agricultural products kept in
warehouses can now be sold through electronic trading. Just imagine the kind of new avenues that are going to
open for agri-business with these reforms.
