Thread: Kisan Movement - Without able leadership & Prioritisation of Farmers Problem

  1. #21

    Really Surprised

    Mr. Abhimanyu Kohar was justifying involvement of Ardhtiya in Kisan Movement at News 24 ( On the discussion that Mr. Chadhuni is also a broker / Commission Agent- Alleged by BJP Spokesperson) and commission paid (2.5%) to them by GOVT on procurement is for services rendered by them. I was surprised on this statement as for farmers' benefit the Farmers Bodies like FPOs/PACS, etc should be involved in Procurement and that should be a demand of this movement.

    How many Ardhtiyyas these poorly informed leader have included in this movement is a matter of concern as farmers are exploited only by these Ardhtiyas/commission agent.

    Regards

    IF Chadhuni is front leader in this movement then it is not a Kisan Movement, it is just Ardhtiya movement and poor farmers have not been properly informed.

    Procurement of Wheat as on 31 May 2021 and Commission involved

    Out of total wheat procurement of 406 lakh MT, the highest share in wheat procurement was of Punjab i.e. 132.10 lakh MT (73% of 180 lakh MT production ) followed by MP i.e. 127.08 lakh MT(61%) of 208 lakh MT),Haryana i.e. 84.93 lakh MT (73%) of 117 lakh MT production , UP i.e 39.50 lakh MT (12% of 335 lakh MT). It clearly indicates that more than 70% wheat produce of Punjab and Haryana has been procured through MSP. Only in Haryana and Punjab about Rs. 42860 crore ( @ Rs. 1975/ qtls as MSP) of wheat has been procured and amount is credited to the farmers through DBT. But interesting thing is that an amount of Rs. 1072 crore (2.5% as commission charges) has been paid as commission charges by GoI to Ardhtiyas and Commission agent. These Rs.1072 crore could have been the income for PACS (Credit Societies or Mini Bank) in place of Ardhtiyas, if procurement centres are made at PACS level instead of Mandi level. We can imagine how much storage facilities at Village level through PACS can be created. But moot question is that the Kisan leaders like Mr. Abhimanyu Kohar openely support the Ardhtiyas as service provider which means how much money out of this Rs. 1072 crore has gone to Kisan movement. That is why te so called Kisan leaders which are misleading to the farmers, never said that middlemen should be removed from procurement system. MP is making procurement through PACS and PACS has benefitted.

    Latest Update on Contract Farming - Study report of MANAGE

    PEPSICO in Punjab
    : Launching its agro-business in India with special focus on exports of value-added processed foods, Pepsi Foods Ltd. (‘PepsiCo’ hereafter) entered India in 1989 by installing a Rs 22 crore state of-the-art tomato processing plant at Zahura in Hoshiarpur district.​Encouraged by the sweeping success of contract farming in tomato in several districts of Punjab, PepsiCo has been successfully emulating the model in food grains (Basmati rice), spices (chillies) and oilseeds (groundnut) as well, apart from other vegetable crops like potato.The company, which had been involved in the export of Basmati rice since 1990, was the first processor in India to invest and strengthen backward linkages for Basmati rice. After extensive multilocational field trials at its 27-acre R&D farm at Jallowal near Jalandhar, PepsiCo ventured into contract farming in Basmati rice on a commercial scale four years ago. The company invested over Rs 5 crore in a modern processing plant at Sonepat in Punjab.
    2. Appachi’s Integrated Cotton Cultivation: Innovative Model Appachi Cotton Company (ACC), the ginning and trading house from Pollachi (Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu, India) hit the headlines in May 2002 for the street play it employed to encourage farmers in the Nachipalayam village in Kinathukadavu block of Coimbatore to sow cotton seeds in their fields. The singer in the street play assured cotton farmers that, unlike in the past, they would not be disappointed if they cultivated cotton on their fields, as they would be backed by a model called the Integrated Cotton Cultivation (ICC), which would guarantee a market-supportive mechanism for selling their produce.The Appachi formula differs significantly from other existing contract farming models on its ‘pricing’ front in that no prior price fixing is done in this model. 3. Ugar Sugar’s experience with barley : The story of the Belgaum (Karnataka)-based Ugar Sugar Works Ltd., which established a successful backward linkage with farmers of Northern Karnataka for supply of barley for its malt unit, is quite interesting and insightful. Farmers surrounding Ugar Sugar in Belgaum, who had been cultivating sugar under intensive irrigation found themselves with the problem of salinity in soils.
    In Punjab and Haryana, Soil Salinity is a major issue and through contract farming it can be resolved. As Kisan leaders have one agenda they are not aware about soil salinity problems, etc. By engaging Govt Deptt, Contract farming can be promoted as happened in PEPSICO.

    [Latest Update : Act was passed later on before that Godowns were constructed - Tikait Statement

    Godowns were constructed under " Gramin Bhandaran Yojana" which was started in 2003-04 and under , Agril. Marketing Infrastructure Scheme which was implemented in States after introducing the clause of Direct Marketing and Contract Farming in APMC act in the year 2008-09. Big warehouses were constructed by < Shubham Logistic: Om Logistic and so many players. In these godowns, subsidy was availed in the name of rural godowns but FMCG products, tyres, Cements, etc are being stored. Mr. Tikait has linked construction of these godowns or silos with 3 New Acts which means he unnecessarily has related this issue to gain the support of farmers but this ideology has raised the question on his capabilities.
