by Nidhi Bhati

Stating that the government is committed towards procurement of agri crops at minimum support price (MSP), Prime Minister Narendra Modi termed it as an important part of the country’s food security. Modi further said that efforts are being made to improve mandi infrastructure so that MSP buying continues in a scientific way. He said the government in the last six years has been investing in boosting infrastructure facilities at Agriculture Produce Marketing Committees (APMCs). APMCs (mandis) have their own identity and strength and they have been in the country for years, he added.
