Interrogating the MSP Regime, Farm Laws and Agrarian Future in India
Pritam Singh and
Millennial Asia, 2021, vol. 12, issue 3, 332-349
The three new farm laws promulgated by the Government of India in 2020 (now repealed) as agricultural marketing reforms, with the claim that they were aimed at expanding farmersâ€™ marketing choices and increasing their incomes, have triggered massive protests by farmers. These protests have crystallized around two key demands: first, repeal the laws and second, make the minimum support price (MSP) for procuring farmersâ€™ produce a legal right. Given that discussions between the government and farmersâ€™ organizations continue to be at an impasse, it is critical to understand the arguments over the laws and the MSP, and the implications of these arguments for the agrarian future of India.
