Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Shri Ram Vilas Paswan The Central Government has taken a number steps for providing remunerative prices to farmers including backward and tribal areas for their crops. These include followings:-

• Keeping in view the procurement potential areas, procurement centres for MSP operations are opened by Government agencies, both FCI and State Government, after mutual consultations.

• Farmers are made aware of the MSP operations by way of advertisements like displaying banners, pamphlets, announcement for MSP and specification in print and electronic media.

• Payment for the wheat and paddy procured from farmers is either made directly to the farmers or through arthias/co-operative societies as per prevailing system of the State. Payment to farmers are also made through A/c payee cheque/electronic mode.

• MSP has been enhanced from time to time to encourage delivery of foodgrains into central pool purchase.
