NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court appointed three-member committee on new farm laws submitted its report to the court on Wednesday.
The committee submitted the report in a sealed cover in which it said that around 85 farmer organisations have been consulted in the case and possible solutions have been discussed to resolve the issue.
The panel held several consultations with eminent academicians and agri-professionals on the legislations against which farmers have been protesting at Delhi’s borders for over three months now.
The three-member committee held consultations with stakeholders both online and in person.
The Supreme Court had on January 12 stayed the implementation of the three contentious farm laws for two months and asked the committee to submit a report within two months after consulting the concerned stakeholders.
Thousands of farmers, especially from Punjab, Haryana and parts of Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at Delhi’s borders for over two months now seeking repeal of the new legislations, introduced by the Centre last year, saying they are pro-corporate and could weaken the mandi system.
