Agriculture sector

Long Overdue

The agriculture sector has been crying for reforms for decades. These Bills resurrect a 1991-moment to finally liberate Indian agriculture and promise a win-win situation for farmers, consumers, start-ups as well as corporates. If in the process, APMC and mandis become history, only the middlemen and rent-seekers will shed tears.

Good crop, but demand may suffer

Government has taken a few good steps. They have opened up the market. Now a farmer can sell their produce anywhere in the country through E-NAM. It has allowed movement of agriculture produce anywhere in the country. If all goes well, it would bring very good results in future. New players will enter the market, would give a better price to the farmers. Then e-commerce companies are also coming up. They would also procure directly from the farmers.
