‘New era of market freedom’: Govt defends farm laws in Eco Survey

Jan 29, 2021 19:31 IST

The government's annual Economic Survey on Friday strongly defended new farm laws, saying they herald a new era of market freedom which can go a long way in improving lives of small and marginal farmers in India. Highlighting the benefits of the new farm laws, the survey said farmers in India have suffered from various restrictions in marketing their produce. The pre-budget document defended the farm laws in the backdrop of long-running farmers' agitation at various borders of the national capital seeking repeal of these legislations while expressing concern that they are pro-corporate and could weaken government regulated mandis.
