Punjab Caves In, Agrees to Make Direct MSP Payment to Farmers as Centre Refuses to Relent on Arhtiyas

News18

With the Centre firmly holding its ground on the direct transfer of MSP to farmers, the Punjab government has agreed to opt for an online payment mode for the upcoming procurement season even as it was contemplating some protection to the arhtiyas.

Three Punjab ministers who had rushed to the national capital for a meeting with Union Food Minister Piyush Goyal to find a solution to the deadlock of direct transfer issue, had to return without any further exemption from the DBT route. The Centre firmly told Punjab that it will procure and reimburse related costs only if the State pays directly to farmers and not through arhtiyas.
