Govt announces MSPs for twenty-two mandated crops, Fair and Remunerative Prices for sugarcane

The Government’s price policy for major agricultural commodities seeks to ensure remunerative prices to the growers for their produce. This is done with a view to encouraging higher investment and production and safeguarding the interest of consumers by making available supplies at reasonable prices.

Towards this end, Government announces Minimum Support Prices (MSPs) for twenty-two mandated crops and Fair and Remunerative Prices for sugarcane at all India level recommendations of the Commission for Agricultural Costs & Prices (CACP) .

The 22 mandated crops include 14 Kharif crops.

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi,on June 08, 2022, approved the increase in the Minimum Support Prices (MSP) for all mandated Kharif Crops for Marketing Season 2022-23 .

The government has increased the MSP of Kharif Crops for Marketing Season 2022-23, to ensure remunerative prices to the growers for their produce and to encourage crop diversification.

The increase in MSP for Kharif Crops for Marketing Season 2022-23 is in line with the Union Budget 2018-19 announcement of fixing the MSP at a level of at least 50 percent over the All India weighted average Cost of Production, aiming at a reasonably fair remuneration for the farmers.

Government announced MSP hikes based on the formula that farmers will get at least 1.5 times the cost of production. This was a promise made and delivered.
