Massive hike in MSP by Modi govt: 150% MSP of Kharif crops among others, farmers ensured 50% profit margin

The Union cabinet has approved the proposal of increasing the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for Kharif crops by 1.5 times the cost. According to report, the MSP for paddy has been increased by around Rs 250 per quintal.

Prime Minister Modi had announced recently that the government is soon going to increase the MSP for Kharif crops to 150% of the cost of production. It was announced during the union budget and was among one of the several major steps planned by the BJP-led government.

Yesterday, it was reported by many media outlets that the PM is holding a high-level meeting to discuss the hike and other major issues. PM Modi reportedly took stock of the procurement data of all the crops on which the MSP was planned to be hiked. The NITI Ayog and the Ministry of Agriculture representatives were there to update the PM on the economic impact and operation and execution of the MSP increase.

The Prime Minister has been very keen on schemes and reforms in the farm sector. He has asserted on many occasions that his government is dedicated to achieving the target of doubling farmer’s income by 2022.

The proposed 150% MSP is expected to help paddy, pulses and other major crops like millet the most. This will ensure a minimum 50% profit margin for the farmers. MSP for several crops like cotton, sesame, sunflower seed, groundnut etc has been raised significantly by the cabinet’s decision.

According to reports, the rise in MSP is estimated to cost about Rs 33,500 crores. The share of paddy alone in the extra cost is estimated to be Rs 12,300 crores.

PM Modi has time and again assured farmers in the country that the government will support them whole-heartedly. “Beej se le ke bazaar tak” has been his slogan for his government’s commitment to farmers.
