Farmers Right to Set Minimum Selling Price – Corrupt NGOs  

June06, 2018 (C) Ravinder Singh

India is let down by ‘Three Generations of Jakhars’ who always worked in Self Interest – Balram Jakhar was Crying when his Kinnows were sold for Rs.25 per kg when Director of Punjab Agriculture from his smaller Kinnow Farm nearby was realizing just Rs.8 Per Kg.

A Street Vendor owning a 4 Wheel Rusty cart buys fruits and vegetables at say Rs.20 per kg in the morning and by evening sells about 100 kgs of fruits and Vegetables at Rs.40 per kg and makesRs.2,000/- daily income. This translates to Rs.7,30,000 Tax Free Annual Income. In cases where Four Brothers are in Business – a joint Family Earns Rs.29,20,000 Tax Free income. Capital Investment required is just say Rs.10,000 or Rs.20,000 only.

But a Family of 4 Brothers Producing Sugarcane are Not Paid for 2-3 Years from day of Sowing and Investment of Rs.10,00,000 Plus Rs.10 Cr Cost of Land Yield No Profit or Net Income. If we Consider Moneylenders Cost it is Negative.

This year TOP – Tomato, Onion & Potato Farmers were paid just Rs.1 per kg. Garlic farmers paid Rs.2 per kg this year joins TOP – its now TOPG.

Jakhars had let down India – a Street Vendor is Free to FIX his Selling Price –  


Why can’t 600m Farmers Coops ‘FIX MINIMUM SELLING PRICE’ for their produce?


Bogus Farm Leader ‘Krishan Bir Choudhary’ mislead Western UP Farmers –

KBC never Tells that UP Farmers also Produce 30 million tones of Milk, 50 million tones of Wheat & Rice – can make 2 million tones of Milk Cake or Burfi that retails for Rs.300/- to Rs.500/- per kg.

Why can’t Farmers own 1000 TPD Sugar Mills within 5 km radius that assures Cash Payment or Sugar For Sugarcane Delivered?

Why can’t Farmers produce ETHANOL Directly from Sugarcane?

In 2008 India imported 128.15 million metric tons of crude, constituting 75% of its total petroleum consumption for that year. By 2025 it will be importing 90% of its petroleum (UNESCAP 2009). In an effort to increase its energy security and independence, the Government of India in October of 2007 set a 20% ethanol blend target for gasoline fuel to be met by 2017. In India, the vast majority of ethanol is produced from sugarcane molasses, a byproduct of sugar. In the future it may also be produced directly from sugarcane juice.


Ethanol Policy 2007 was Sabotaged by Sugar Mills and RIL in 11 Years. India spent $2000b in these years on Import of Energy.


Why can’t FARMERS OWN SUGAR BUFFER STOCKS and Paid in ‘Sugar’ for Sugarcane Delivered – Farmer Delivering 10 T of Sugarcane – Returning with 1 T of Sugar?  

Why not invest in 100-500 KW Solar Farms, SME Food Processing?
