In September, the government implemented all three agrarian laws as a major improvement in agriculture. The government says the role of the intermediary will end after these laws and farmers will be allowed to sell their products anywhere in the country. At the same time, farmers are demanding the repeal of all three agricultural laws. Farmers say the laws have been enacted to benefit the industry and eliminate the knee and minimum support pricing (MSP) system.
