One thousand 500 above the market rate. He further mentioned that the government has complied with its commitment for not to make the farmers sell their produces at low prices, on which an amount of Rs. One thousand crore has been spent by the government. Shri Chouhan stated that the government does not worry about the money for helping the farmers.
