    The bill, passed on Tuesday, was approved by the lower house last week and replaces an ordinance promulgated in June.
  • Hike in MSP of crops likely to raise prices of pulses, oilseeds

    The price of moong and chana whose MSP was hiked by 6.3% and 4.6%, respectively, rose slightly in major wholesale markets of Mumbai, Indore and Delhi on Tuesday, said Suresh Aggarwal, president of the All India Dal Mills Association.
  • India’s farmers give Mahindra (and maybe Modi) a sliver of hope

    India’s farm equipment sales have been improving since a barren April, when all sorts of manufacturers across the country were forced to halt production and the top carmakers didn’t report any vehicle sales.
  • Reform or no reform, the farmer is hardly the saviour India is waiting for. Aiyar explains why

    Some sections of industry have lately come to pin recovery hopes on a rural/farm revival, based mainly on factors such as rising tractor sales over the past couple of months. But agriculture is just 14% — or roughly one-seventh — of GDP and hence can't make up for the suffering of the rest of the economy. There are other reasons too.
  • Newly passed farm bills will ensure sustainable, profitable future for farming community: FAIFA

    "These visionary bills will ensure a sustainable and profitable future for the farming community," FAIFA said in a statement.
  • View: New farm bills will unshackle 43% of India’s workforce that is engaged in the sector

    Farmers will be able to enter into agreements with food processors to grow processable varieties and sell them at assured prices. Nor will they be restricted in to whom and where they sell their produce.
  • Centre hikes up rabi MSP by 6.3%, assures farmers of no dilution of minimum support prices

    The government has raised minimum support prices (MSP) of the rabi, or winter-sown, crops by up to 6.3% and announced the new rates a month before it usually does to reassure farmers that the new laws on agriculture will not dilute MSP operations.
  • New agri bills will change farmers' fortune, says Agri Minister Tomar

    The new laws for agriculture will significantly benefit farmers, and have absolutely nothing to do with the system of minimum support prices (MSP), which will continue, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said.
  • Why many Indian farmers and politicians oppose PM Narendra Modi's farm laws

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi's cabinet had issued emergency executive orders in June to change the longstanding rules that govern the vast agriculture sector, which contributes nearly 15% of the output of the $2.9 trillion economy and employs around half of India's 1.3 billion people.
  • Government hikes wheat MSP by Rs 50 to Rs 1,975 per quintal

  • Govt sets foodgrain output target at record 301 mn tonnes for 2020-21

The bills will replace ordinances promulgated in June.
  • Many farm leaders welcome agricultural reforms despite some resistance in Punjab and Haryana

    The bills remove restrictions on sale and transportation of farm produce and allows them to enter into contracts with large buyers at an assured price.
  • Farm fix: Two worrisome features of the farm bills that invite valid opposition

    Arhtiyas are also politically influential. In all probability, they call the shots in the ongoing protests. But there are two features of the bills that invite valid opposition: one, infraction of the states’ right to decide on intra-state commerce in agriculture, and two, officer-led dispute settlement outside the ambit of judicial review.
  • View: Why farmers are upset about agriculture reforms that claim to grant them more freedom

    The present law dilutes the power of the middleman. The farmer is now free to sell his produce to whoever he wants to at whatever price he negotiates. It basically removes the middleman, the adhtiya, who operate in the mandi, i.e. the Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee (APMC). So the farmer has more options, and how can that be a bad thing?
  • Agriculture reforms: From free market to private investment, here's a look at key measures
