Context: State government amended the Agriculture Produce Market Rules 2020.

More about news:

  • Now, the payment for the products procured from the farmers would be directly credited to the farmers’ account.
  • The  Arhtiyas or the informal moneylenders used to receive this payment earlier.
  • This is a good mode of e-governance, where the government is seeking to ease the lives of its citizens.
  • The Arhtiyas will continue receiving the payment of the 2.5% Commission.


  • Free the farmers from the trap of the moneylenders.
  • Make the farmers dependence of the informal money providers less.
  • The debt trap cycle of the farmers could be done away with.
  • Many farmer unions and even the World Bank were clamouring for such a step.
