“Agriculture Bill 2020”
India is an agricultural country more than 70% of India’s population is directly or indirectly involved in agriculture-related work. Due to the diligence of those farmers, we are ready to sit and dine in peace. These farmers sustain the entire country but it is a sad truth that they are struggling with starvation. Recently, the central government has passed new agricultural bills for the benefit of the farmers and the agricultural sector. Farmers and some state governments are opposing these agricultural bills. farmers across the country have protested against these bills by taking to the streets. Indian Government has introduced the Agriculture Bill in September 2020 by our President Ram Nath Kovind approved the three agriculture bills that were passed by the Indian Parliament.
What is Agriculture Bill 2020?
Agriculture Bill or Farmers Bill is a combination of three bills that have become law now. These bills are; Farmers Produce and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill 2020, Farmers Agreement (Empowerment and Protection) on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill 2020, and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill 2020. These bills make big structural changes in the agriculture sector. These bills also encourage corporate investments in the agriculture ecosystem to make agriculture more profitable for farmers.
Benefits of Agriculture Bill:
The Farm Bill 2020 predicts a path for farmers as an alternative platform to sell their products in the open market. Now farmers can sell their products openly to anyone and anywhere and they can get a higher price. There will be no Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) market fee or cess on transactions in such trade areas. APMCs will continue their functioning. Now APMCs have to compete with these alternate platforms and now farmers have a choice for selling their products. This bill gives powers to farmers to sell their goods to the company or exporter buying in bulk from the farm.
Government’s aim towards Agriculture Bill:
The government has introduced these Farm Bills to transform the agriculture sector. This step has been taken by the govt to spice up the agriculture sector and double the farmer’s income by 2022. It is thought that freeing of agriculture sector will eventually help in better pricing. When farmers will sell their products to corporates and exporters directly it will induce the corporate sector to invest in the agri-ecosystem. This will also give farmers better access to modern technology and farmers will be benefited from it.
Impact of the Bills:
The farmer is now the producer and the seller of his own produce and will be free to enter into an agreement with private trade directly. Consumers would now get the products at much lower costs. The Arthias will lose the economic stranglehold they have on the mandis. Different State Governments’ revenues will be adversely affected.
The farmers will earn better income as they get to dictate their own price and do not have to pay transportation charges anymore. Competition is the best protector of stakeholders whether it is a consumer or farmers. Although the role of middlemen is not going to end completely, their hold on the trade will not be as strong.
