Union Cabinet Paves Way To Introduce Farm Laws Repeal Bill In Winter Session Of Parliament

New Delhi: The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the proposal to withdraw three controversial farm laws that triggered year-long protests by thousands of farmers in the national capital.

The government will now introduce “The Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021” in Parliament during the Winter Session that begins on November 29.

Union Minister Anurag Thakur informed this at a media conference here. “The Union Cabinet led by PM completed formalities to repeal the three Farm Laws. During the upcoming Winter Session of Parliament, it will be our priority to take back these three laws,” he said.

The Union Ministry of Agriculture has finalised this Bill after holding consultations with the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), according to reports. Prime Minister Modi supervised the Cabinet meeting which took up other issues as well.

The Repeal Bill seeks to repeal the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmer’s (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance, Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
