SC Lambasts States Over Stubble Burning, Orders Incentives For Farmers
- The SC ordered an incentive of Rs 100 per quintal for small & marginal farmers to handle residue of non-Basmati rice crops in states of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.
- Punishing farmer is not the ultimate solution, providing them the basic facilities and resources is important
- State governments have also been ordered to provide machines on a hiring basis and also operational expenses for hiring these machines to small and marginal farmers. This will help them deal with crop stubble (parali).
- Agriculture is the backbone of the country and interest of small and marginal farmers must be protected. Plea of lack of funds cannot be ground for the govt to neglect them
