Defanging #APMCs mean👇

Farmers can sell directly to processors,at price they wish to,with no middlemen

Farmers can sell beyond Notified Mandi

#MSP to continue

#TradeCartelisation to end

@narendramodi gov creating single #AgriMarket
My Oped @firstpost
firstpost.com/india/defangin…
While @HarsimratBadal_ has politicised the issue,#Punjab,an @INCIndia ruled State,is one of the few States that already allows #ContractFarming,in select commodities,to farmers,via separate State legislation..So opposition to #FarmBills by Congressis&Akalis,is not about Farmers!
Are #Akalis opposed to #FarmBills of @narendramodi govt,as these Bills once they become Acts,will strip Mandi Traders,wily Commission Agents,Food Processors,Exporters&Marketing Committees of #APMCs,of the brazen power they wield,forcing farmers to sell their produce,dirt cheap?😑
Farm legislations will allow @narendramodi govt to invoke #EssentialCommoditiesAct only if retail prices rise 50% for non-perishables&100% for perishables, over average retail prices in preceding 12months or last five years--diluting EC Act of 1955,is last nail for Nehruvianism!
Earlier,due to EC Act,there were Stock limits&restrictions on quantity that #FoodTraders could buy from #Farmers;Due to lack of storage,farmers would get rid of surplus at distress prices--Now,with no stock limits,both traders& farmers,will gain,without fear of hoarding surplus💪
Why are "Farmers" protesting?

Let us get this clear--it is not farmers but wealthy owners of existing Mandis,with political connect,who are protesting,as #Mandis set up under #APMC Acts,have been excluded from definition of #TradeArea,under new legislation by @narendramodi govt
Why did @narendramodi gov exclude existing Mandis from definition of trade area?

It was done to give #Farmers a choice-they can sell either in Mandi or new #TradeArea,outside current #Mandi

Mandi owners don't want competition--@narendramodi has broken their monopoly;that simple
Why are protests largely in Punjab?

Bills by @narendramodi gov say,no fees will be levied on farmers/ traders,in #TradeArea

Charges in Punjab are 8.5%-Market fee of 3%,Rural development charge of 3%&Middleman commission of 2.5%

No wonder,vested interests from #Punjab are vexed
Also,under new system by @narendramodi gov,any trader with PAN card can get license&buy farm produce from trade area or Mandi

It means more competition for Middlemen or #Arhatiyas,who till now,had monopoly in Mandis

More players in Mandi,will reduce transaction cost for farmers
Protests about #DisputeResolution are misguided

Any dispute between #Farmer& counter-party will be settled by #ConciliationBoard,appointed by Sub Divisional Magistrate

Why go to #CivilCourts,which are already burdened,is the logic by @narendramodi govt&it is absolutely right!

#Rupee has fallen far lower Vs #Dollar,comparatively👇

Euro,2 days ago,went below $1 for 1st time in 20yrs,reflecting big weakness in #Euro

Rupee,displaying strength,has risen big time against Euro,Pound &Yen💪

So #Madarsa dentists from Congress should stop lecturing on Rupee
@narendramodi govt in a landmark measure has allowed international trade settlement in #Rupees

Explained👇
When countries import&export goods&services,they have to make payments in foreign currency

Since US Dollar is world’s reserve currency,most trades are entered into in USD
Here,both parties involved have to incur conversion expenses&bear risk of foreign exchange rate fluctuations

This is where trade settlement in Rupee comes in-instead of paying &receiving US Dollars,invoice will be made in Indian Rupees if counterparty has #Rupee Vostro account

Congressi trolls who know nothing about Economy,are giving gyaan on #Dollar& #Rupee

Yes Rupee hit 77.40 to a Dollar,but,but..

Every major currency has hit lows against Dollar

China's Yuan hit 2yr low@ 6.7 to $
Euro hit 5yr low@ 1.04 to a $

#DollarIndex hit 20yr high at 104.07
Some Business News anchors are saying Rupee has fallen against Dollar because our monthly #TradeDeficit is hitting $20bn&our Current Account Deficit(CAD),will be 3%

Well,$20bn a month Trade Deficit is no big deal for us,given that our Goods+Services Exports are a massive $670bn
2.5-3% CAD for an economy growing at average of 7.5-9.5% is not a big deal either

In fact,in last 8yrs,average CAD under @narendramodi govt has been sub 2%,so we have enough leeway on that count

Why then are major Currencies falling against Dollar?

Well,reason is,Fed Rate Hike

Air India were nationalised by Nehru in 1953

Since it's merger with Indian Airlines in 2007-08,Air India never made profit

Accumulated losses at Rs70820Cr till Aug2021,showcase how #AirIndia was bled for decades by corrupt Congress

@narendramodi finally did what had to be done
As on Aug 31,2021,Air India had total debt of Rs 61562Cr

About 75% of the debt has been transferred to a SPV,#AIAHL,before handing over airline to Tata Group

Indian taxpayers will no longer have to pay Rs 20Cr per day,to keep loss making #AirIndia flying,thx to @narendramodi
Congress expectedly attacked the decision,as selling of family silver

What Tata is getting is not a cash cow but an airline which is bleeding &money needs to be pumped in to refurbish obsolete aircraft

No employee to be sacked for 1yr &resizing of staff only after paying VRS
