  • Dear sir, This is a closest

    Dear sir,

    This is a closest realistic analysis of woes of farmers in bundelkhand.

    I have recently left corporate life and started doing farming in Tikamgarh, mp. When I came in may, I could see huge crowd making temporary shelters on their tractors or heap of wheat waiting outside purchasing centers.

    The mighty got their grain already fed in procurement system through back door without even sending wheat to center. When whole procurement process got completed, this grain was sent to warehouses in mid of the night.

    While govt, towards the end of procurement deadline, announced purchasing of gunny bags from farmers also, procurement systems were already full with black market grain.

    A vicious nexus of govt employees, business men and middle men have turned this long awaited bumper production into a failed affair.

    I do not understand why govt stop purchasing grain from the last farmer. We all know that the weakest farmer is the last farmer to produce document and sell grain. Why doesnt govt digitize land records on priority basis to minimize corruption?

    Bundelkhand needs new approach for solving it's problems. Hope govt is listening.

  • Whatever may be the situation

    Whatever may be the situation overproduction or underproduction,both way farmer's are going to suffer.problem is not providing credit,problem is no efficient credit reporting system.Financial institutions and bank should readily check the farmer's debt history and then avail loan to them.
    Pathetic !!! and what to say to procurement and warehousing facility of govt.,they just dnt have gunny bages???unable to understand.I think now farmer's will scare in over-production conditions too.Anyway,,farmer's are suffering...high time to do sometinhg!!!
