New crop MSP for 2020-2021 let us see

During the time of farmers against the govt or protest against the govt on agriculture three ordinances. They have cleared the way for farmers that they are not closing the Mandi and these ordinances are not against farmers and these are for farmers' benefits

There is an uproar in the nearby agricultural bills in Parliament because of the fear of ending the MSP in many states. The government said the support price system will continue, some people are misleading the farmers.


The government on Monday raised the minimum support price (MSP) of 6 rabi crops, amid opposition uproar over farmer bills in Parliament. The support price of wheat has been increased by Rs 50 / quintal. This decision was taken in the cabinet meeting. The government fixes the MSP on the recommendation of the CACP i.e. Commission for Agriculture Cost and Prices before each harvest season. If there is a bumper yield of a crop, then its market prices are lower, then the MSP acts as a fixed assurance price for the farmers.
