Guarantee on MSP, tax on private mandis : Key points of Centre’s draft proposal to farmers
The Centre on Wednesday sent a draft proposal to allay the concerns of thousands of farmers who are protesting against the new agriculture laws at various border points of Delhi. In its draft proposal, the Centre said it is ready to provide a written assurance that the existing Minimum Support Price (MSP) system will continue.
In its proposal, which comes a day after the farmer leaders met Union home minister Amit Shah, the government has said it is ready to make necessary amendments to at least seven issues and address the key concern that the mandi system will collapse.
However, the farmers rejected the draft proposal and insisted that the government must repeal the laws.
