Punjab Government Bill against Central Agricultural Laws

Punjab Government Bill against Central Agricultural Laws

To end the potential impact of three agricultural laws passed by Parliament, the Punjab government on Tuesday
Passed bills for his own state. It is noteworthy that the following three laws were passed by the Central Government last month:

> Farmers Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020: Under this  the APMC is exempted from selling its produce outside agricultural mandis. MSP on this type of purchase
Will not apply, while MSP will be applied within the mandis.

> Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Convention on Price Assurance and Agricultural Services Act, 2020 


>Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020: According to the Essential Commodities Act Limits will only be set  when prices of perishable foods like onions, potatoes, tomatoes  increase by 100% and non perishable will increase by more than 50% in the stock. 



If a dispute arises between the farmer and the businessman, they can go to the subdivision officer, who is will constitute the board. The farmers are concerned that a decision can be taken against them in the said system and they think 
It is also not allowed to go to court.
Now, the Punjab government has passed these bills to minimize the effects of Central bills.The purpose of these Bills is the continuation of wheat and paddy at the Minimum Support Price (MSP).
Ensuring procurement, retaining powers of courts in dispute settlement and providing food grains to the state
Empowering to regulate trade.
Road ahead
Bills passed by Punjab will be sent by the Governor for approval to the President, if the President approves these bills , it will be implemented, which is very unlikely. Even when rejected by the President
These Bills will have symbolic significance.
