. The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020, Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, June 5, 2020. What does the law say about the developer acquiring or modifying property rights on farm land or premises? No farmer can enter into an agricultural agreement “by deviating from the rights of a protagonist.” Parties to an agricultural agreement may, with mutual consent, amend or denounce the agreement for “reasonable” reasons. The Conciliation Board (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020 The Act provided for a three-step dispute resolution mechanism by the conciliation body, the sub-division`s magistan and the appeal authority. The agreement was to provide for a conciliation body and a conciliation procedure for the settlement of disputes.  The law has been the subject of much criticism from farmers across the country, particularly in Punjab and Haryana. Without any regulation, the interests of farmers are neglected.   On 5 June 2020, the central government adopted three regulations: (i) the 2020 Farmers Trade and Trade Regulation (promotion and facilitation); (ii) the Agreement on Price Security and The Protection of Agricultural Services, 2020 and (iii) the Commodity Regulation (Amendment) 2020. , The regulations collectively aim to facilitate (i) the accessibility of agricultural products outside of markets notified under the various laws under the various laws ( (ii) to establish a framework for contract agriculture and (iii) to limit agricultural products only when retail prices rise sharply. Together, the three regulations are intended to increase the ability of farmers to enter into long-term sales contracts, increase buyer availability and allow buyers to purchase large quantities of agricultural products. There have been protests by farmers nationwide, including in Haryana, Punjab and West Uttar Pradesh – against the three bills that the government says will open up the agricultural sector to private investors and global markets. Agricultural markets in India are governed primarily by the laws of the Agricultural Producers Marketing Committee (CMPA). LDCs were set up to ensure fair trade between buyers and sellers in order to effectively price farmers` products.
 LDCs may: (i) regulate the trade in farmers` products by licensing buyers, Commission representatives and private markets, (ii) impose market royalties or other taxes on such trade and (iii) provide the necessary infrastructure in their markets to facilitate trade. The method used to determine the price indicated should be mentioned in the agreement. Unless otherwise stated in this Act, an agricultural service provider may become a party to the farm contract. In this case, the role and services of the supplier must be explicitly stated in the agreement. When the delivery of an agricultural product must be taken care of by the promoter as part of the operating contract, he accepts that delivery within the agreed time frame. Before the delivery is accepted, the sponsor can check the quality or any other characteristics of these products, as stated in the agreement. The price of agricultural products can be mentioned in the agricultural agreement. In the event that such a price is subject to change, the agreement should explicitly include a guaranteed price to the farmer for his products and a clear reference for each additional amount to be paid – including a bonus or bonus “to get the farmer to the best of his ability.” This price may be related to the prevailing prices in some agricultural shipyards (which are designed to regulate markets and agricultural exchanges in accordance with various national laws) or to electronic trading and trading platforms (set up to facilitate the trade and trade of agricultural products via a network of electronic devices and internet applications).
