Will Indian Farmers Income Double or Half in Five Years?

April13, 2016 (C) Ravinder Singh ravinderinvent@gmail.com
When GDP growth in India is recorded at 7% or more and Farmers Real
Income is Negative in drought years – we don’t even consider Deaths of
Farm Animals in Drought, Re-boring of Tube-wells, Income Loss to
Farmers in Drought Year or Crop Loss but Moneylenders Profits Triple
or Quadruple, Farmers Pay 4-10 Times for Foods & Water normally
available at farms.
Farmers are not allowed to STORE, PROCESS & MARKET their produce, when
GoI reports GDP Contribution of Agriculture at 17% Farming GDP is
barely 10% or even less, But Help Traders/Moneylenders Easy Access to
Farmers.
GoI has not increased MSP even as Pay Commissions had raised INCOME of
public servants by 100 times when MSP has increased by 15 times in 40
years and Cost of Farming – i.e. Diesel has gone up 100 Times >>
Thus Instead of Doubling of Farmers Income in Five Years – Real Income
of Indian farmers could half in five years.
NOTHING IN THE BUDGET-FY17 TO INCREASE FARM INCOME
We are MISLED into believing GoI has given Farmers BIG Package
Farmers get SHORT TERM CROP Loans which are to be Returned immediately
on Harvest, Industry & Business Get Long Term Credit Without Creating
Jobs, Taxes or for SIMPLY Importing foreign goods and retailing after
packaging.
    How had electrification of 5000 Villages in last 2 Years benefitted 6,00,000
Villages? Roads, Highways, Ponds, National Waterways, Land Records, E-
Procurement, Urban Garbage etc are not going to increase Income of Farmers?
    Forget Irrigation Ponds, Dams and Water Supply Schemes already built can’t
provide CLEAN Drinking Water to 80% Population in India.
    COLD CHAIN, FDI in Food Retail, Ripening Chambers Will Not Be Owned By
FARMERS, will actually PROFIT MARGINS OF TRADERS.
    Instead of GM Seeds which DOUBLE Crop Yields like in BT Cotton are not
supported but Farmers URGED to adopt ORGANIC & Traditional Farming
this actually MEANS Low Yields & produce for URBAN & FOREIGN Markets.
    UNIFIED AGRICULTURAL MARKETING ACTUALLY MEANS AMBANI
& ADANI CAN BUY ANY OR ALL FARM PRODUCE FROM THEIR OFFICE.
WHY CAN’T GoI THINK OF UNIFIED FARMERS MARKET WHERE FARMERS GET PAID
50%-70% OF RETAIL VALUE OF FARM PRODUCE?

Naresh — A lot has happened

Watch with us
Naresh —
A lot has happened since the last Democratic debate back in March:
  • We won five for five on Mini Super Tuesday and built on our delegate lead with a BIG win in Arizona. Hillary currently leads the primary race by more than 200 pledged delegates!
  • We crossed 9 million total votes, the most earned by any candidate in this election.
  • The Sanders campaign has started chucking everything they can against the wall to try and make something stick and slow down our momentum (even calling Hillary Clinton unqualified to be president!).
Add that all up and it’s clear the next debate on Thursday, April 14th, is going to be a big night — so there’s never been a more important time for you to let Hillary know you have her back. Will you join a debate watch party in New York on Thursday?
This is the last debate before folks head to the polls in key states, so it’s crucial to get out in your community, meet other members of Team Hillary, and get involved in this campaign.
It’s up to us to stand with Hillary and lock up this nomination the right way — by fighting for every last vote. RSVP as soon as you can for the party in New York:
Reserve your spot
Thanks,
Marlon

Hillary needs you now more than ever — chip in $1 to join more than one million grassroots donors standing with her:
