The farmers are no more bound to sell their crop at the mandi.The rent of the godowns will be paid by the government. He further told that if the farmer needs any money urgently at any point of time the banks will make 25 percent amount of the total crop available as loan to them. The interest on this loan also will be borne by the government.
