These were introduced in September after the passage of three Agri Bills introduced in the Monsoon Session of Parliament in both Houses. However, earlier through an ordinance, these laws came into force from June 5.
The next round of talks is proposed on December 29 to resolve the deadlock between the government and farmer organisations regarding these three laws. This is the first among the four issues in the agenda for this dialogue by the farmers organisations, which has been sent to the government.
In addition, they want to negotiate with the government on the procedure and provisions to provide a legal guarantee for procurement on a profitable MSP suggested by the National Farmers Commission. The other two issues proposed for the next round of negotiations include the Commission Ordinance for Air Quality Management in the National Capital Region and adjoining areas, amendments in 2020 that are necessary to exclude farmers from the penal provisions of the ordinance and changes in the draft of the Electricity Amendment Bill 2020.
