Cabinet decisions on crops

  • Cabinet on approved rather modest increases of 1-9% for 14 kharif crops for the 2019-20 seasons. Government has ensured that benchmark prices stay at least 150% of the production cost.
  • Cabinet approved Bill on Wage Code. This move can extend the benefit of obligatory minimum wages to all workers not just those in ‘scheduled employments’ as at present.
