Bengal allows retail to source agricultural produce directly from farmers
Posted On: 11-09-2013 00:00:00 13

West Bengal government has decided to come up with a scheme allowing companies to procure farms directly from farmers. The Brihat Krishak Bazar Yojana scheme will allow private developers to set up terminal markets under the Agriculture Produce Marketing Committee (APMC) Act. According to the scheme, developers who invest in procurement terminals for farm produce like cold storage, warehouses and processing plants, would be selected by a competitive bidding process. The government will grant a license to procure, store and process agricultural produce. Further, while the state government is opposed to contract farming as suggested in the Centre's model act, the state is planning to introduce its own version of the agricultural reform, namely "partnership farming", which the government claims would ensure certain safeguards for farmers. So while the Centre's model allows an agreement between private players and farmers, in the "partnership farming" there would be tripartite agreement involving the state authority.
