Agriculture produce selling centre to be set up near farm
Nashik: Following a recent announcement by the central government to double farmers’ income, moves have been started for its implementation. Basic facilities will be made available to use the weekly markets for selling agriculture produce for their farms itself.
The action will be taken as per recommendations suggested by a committee formed by the central government to double farmers’ income. Due to natural calamities, low rains and various reasons, the life of the standard of farmers has lowered. Debt-ridden farmers are committing suicides.
Though farmers are demanding to give minimum support price, the central government is taking various steps to double farmers’ income. A committee that has been formed for this purpose has tabled some important recommendations.
It has been recommended to organize weekly bazaar in a rural area near the farm to sell agriculture produce or make available basic facilities at the local level for this purpose. Agriculture produces selling center will be set up near the farm of farmers through the central government.
This will help in saving money of farmers over the transportation of their products to market committee.
