Latest Agriculture Bill: Massive Opposition

The government of India is facing massive opposition from farmers & farmer bodies for their latest ordinance. The bill is likely to liberate the agricultural trade & abolish the regulations governed by the APMCs. It will free up the market & farmers will be able to sell their produce even outside the physical markets dedicated by the government. The bill appears positive but the farmers have several unanswered questions which is raising resistance. Lack of clarity around the pricing determination & tax structures is causing discomfort among farming community. Time will only tell if this reform will bring prosperity for farmers or add to their miseries.
