Mahika Nautiyal moderated the discussion, Shreya Gupta presented the provisions and Adit Narayan presented the fall outs of the three contentious farm bills. PowerPoint Presentation was prepared by Akshita Bhatt.
The highlight of the panel discussion included the three farms laws, and discussion on provisions and against the farm bills are as follows:
- The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act
- Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act
- The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act
Provisions: The three bills aspire to liberalize and deregulate the market for the agrarian sector, these laws bring long awaited reforms to the key segment of the Indian economy.
The three laws open up new opportunities for the farmers so that they can earn more from the farm produce. The new laws would help to strengthen farming infrastructure through greater private investments. With food markets growing exponentially in India, private players would make agriculture profitable for the farmers. With the repealing of farm laws in November of last year, a huge problem of agriculture sector is left unaddressed.
Against: These Bills do look very lucrative and good on paper but the ground reality might not be the same , the way these bill were rushed through the parliament without adequate safeguards and checks for farmers it was completely wrong and farmers protested for it, still , better late than never the farm laws were taken back because it indeed was a very big risk for the farmers where they could become vulnerable to exploitation in the future . Therefore, these bills need significant amendments before government’s vision can turn into reality.
At the end, Principal, Ms Preeti Sangwan, appreciated the efforts of the students and encouraged them to organize such events in future as well.
