Mumbai: Currently, onion growers in the state are in trouble. Due to fall in prices, the farmers have to bear a heavy financial blow. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde today announced in the Vidhan Sabha that a subsidy of Rs 300 per quintal will be given to the distressed onion farmers in the state. The Chief Minister has said that with this decision, onion producing farmers will get a big relief. It is not just a declaration, but an actual decision to give. This time Shinde has also hinted that you show the carrot, we will give you the trick.
Chief Minister Eknath Shinde said, our share in onion production of the country is 43 percent. But this problem has arisen due to increase in onion production in other states. Due to increase in onion production in other states of the country, demand is less than supply. Due to this, the price of onion has fallen. Since onion is a perishable crop, minimum support price cannot be applied to it. Onion is an important cash crop in Maharashtra and its price is a very sensitive part of the relationship for onion producing farmers.
