Farm Laws Repeal Bill 2021 passed in Parliament as Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha approve it on Day 1 of Winter Session


Parliament passed the Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021, with the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha approving it on the first day of the Winter Session yesterday. The bill seeking to withdraw the three farm bills was moved in Lok Sabha by Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar amid ruckus by the Opposition. It was passed in the Lower House without discussion as Speaker Om Birla said debate is not possible in a noisy scene.

The three Laws sought to be repealed include the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.



Tomar said MSP procurement has been doubled in comparison to the year 2014. Earlier only paddy and wheat crop was procured on MSP. Under the leadership of PM Modi, MSP procurement was started on pulses, oilseeds and cotton.
