Commercial and commercial regulations give buyers the freedom to purchase farm products outside of APMC markets without having a licence or paying fees to the APMCs. The Contract Agriculture Regulation provides buyers and farmers with a framework for entering into a contract (before the start of a harvest season) guaranteeing farmers a minimum price and guaranteeing buyers a guaranteed supply. The third regulation amends the Basic Law, which provides that limits on agricultural stocks can only be set if retail prices rise sharply and value chain operators and exporters are exempt from any stock limits. The three regulations aim to increase the availability of buyers for farmers` products by allowing them to act freely and without a licence or storage limit, so that increased competition between them leads to better prices for farmers.
