Supreme Court-formed Farm Laws Committee submits its Report in a sealed cover

A Supreme Court-appointed Committee to resolve the deadlock between protesting farmers and the government over the three contentious Farm Laws, has submitted its report to the Apex court in a sealed cover. 

After deliberating over the three Farm Laws for three months, the three-member committee including President of Shetkari Sanghatana Anil Ghanwat, Agriculture Economist Pramod Kumar Joshi, and Agriculturalist Ashok Gulati submitted its report.

A Bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde had earlier stayed the implementation of the three controversial Farm Laws. Since November 2020, the farmers particularly from Punjab and Haryana have been protesting at the Dehli borders againt it. 

Until further orders, the apex court had stayed the implementation of the Farmers ( Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act 2020, the Farmer Produce Trade and Commerce ( Promotion and Facilitation) Act and the Amendment to the Essential Commodities Act. 

In the wake of concerns raised regarding the opinions by the committee members, National President of Bharatiya Kisan Union Bhupinder Sigh Mann had earlier recused himself from the Committee formed.
