Another ‘good news’ for farmers in the making

Jaipur - After the government hiked the MSP for kharif crops, farmers are likely to get more “good news” from the Prime Minister in the coming days, minister of state for agriculture Gajendra Singh Shekhawat recently said.

“The government is committed for the issues of farmers and a robust mechanism can be developed in such a way that farmers can be benefitted more,” Shekhawat said.

“For this, the Prime Minister has asked the NITI Aayog and we all are working together and can say that the PM would give another good news to farmers in coming days,” the minister said.

He said the Centre has already increased the government guarantee to lender banks for providing credit limit to the National Agriculture Cooperative Marketing Federation of India (NAFED) for the procurement of pulses and oilseeds under the price support scheme (PSS).

Speaking at a function, the minister said the government has taken several initiatives to achieve the target of doubling farmers' income by 2022, including by enhancing infrastructure and other facilities.

He also said that besides market reforms, use of technology is also crucial in increasing farmers' income.
