The new Indian farm acts 2020: All you need to know.

About 300,000 are protesting and sleeping on roads for about 25 days now, in freezing nights of the capital.

After reading many articles and watching hundreds of interviews, I tried to summarize the issues and compared them with existing/ old laws:

Law 1: Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020

Law 2: Farmer’s Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020

Law 3: Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020

A small example is that in local Indian “Kirana Shops” (grocery stores), you can get corn at 25 per kg price, but it is sold at 100–150 per kg at Walmart stores.

As per basic economics- they will then control the demand and, eventually, the price of that food commodity.
