Union Cabinet approves proposal to repeal three farm laws

New Delhi, November 24

The Union Cabinet has approved the proposal to withdraw the three farm laws on Wednesday, sources said.

The Government of India has listed ‘The Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021’ in the legislative business to be taken up in Lok Sabha during the winter session of Parliament beginning November 29.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, earlier on Friday, announced that the Centre will repeal the three farm laws and bring necessary bills in the winter session of Parliament beginning later this month.

The Prime Minister had also announced that the government will constitute a committee to work on a new framework for Minimum Support Price (MSP).

Farmers have been protesting against the government’s three farm laws since the Centre had passed the laws in 2020.
