Govt directs agri-machine makers, dealers to sell at same price: MoS agri

Farm machine makers and dealers have been directed to sell their products at the same price across the country, Union Minister of State for Agriculture Shobha Karandlaje said on Thursday.
The minister made this statement in Goa during a review meeting with the state’s Agriculture Minister Chandrakant Kavlekar and officials on the implementation of centrally sponsored farm schemes.
Karandlaje lauded state Chief Minister Pramod Sawant and the state’s agriculture minister for doing “amazing work” for the better implementation of the farmers’ welfare in Goa.
She also honoured woman farmer Darshana Pednekar at the Goa Secretariat, who received accolades from Prime Minister Narendra Modi for her modern agricultural practices.
“Price of agricultural mechanisms should be the same in every state. It should not differ in different places in the country. The Government of India has instructed dealers and manufacturers to put the same price list across the country,” an official statement quote
