WHAT'S HAPPENING?

Farmers from Punjab and Haryana are protesting recent agriculture bills passed by the Prime Minister Modi, due to the economic impact it has on the backbone of the Indian economy-hard working farmers.

There are three reform farm bills passed by the Modi administration that encourage private sector firms to invest in agriculture. Due to the impact this legislation has on supply and demand, farmers will earn less and in return struggle to provide for their families.

These bills arrive at a particular arduous time for farmers. Farm bankruptcies have been a source of misery in India for decades, but the COVID pandemic has exacerbated these grievances. With surging cases in India, lockdowns have prevented farmers from tending to their fields. These new bills add to an already devastating year for farmers.

The three bills

- Promotion & Facilitation

-Empowerment & Protection

-Essential Commodities

There are three main problems with the current state-controlled system known as the mandi system.

- Supply chain inefficiency leads to crops spoiling during the transaction chain

-Cartels of commission agents work together to buy crops for the lowest price.

- Farmers face a lack of options for selling their crops and making a profit.

The provisions in these new bills would liberate farmers from the mandi system, allowing them to sell their crops to private corporations and other mandi markets outside of their geographical area. These bills will lead to the creation of a national common market for farmers to sell their crops and the dismantling of the mandi monopoly.

Illusion Of Competition:

These two private industry juggernauts that would fill this void- Ambani and Adani- would hardly create the envisioned competition. Commission agents and mandis would practically be eliminated, leaving the power and control to lie with the large corporations.

Price Gouging:

Currently, farmers have a guarantee that comes as the minimum support price (MSP). This ensures a certain base price for the crops. With the introduction of private companies, farmers worry that they will incur more debt as companies seek to maximize their profits and control the market.

Bargaining Power:

While theoretically these bills create more competition, farmers are concerned that a few large corporations will dominate the market. Within the mandi system, farmers retain some bargaining power due to the fact that is a public system. Farmers fear this power will be further reduced if there are monopolies set up by private companies.

HOW DO WE DONATE?

Every time a purchase is made on our website the money is directly sent to Sahaita’s India location. ALL proceeds from your purchase excluding shipping are sent to the farmer families. Shipping is not included because shipping fees are sent to the fulfillment centres so they can ship out your order. We as founders pay for the website and for the production of merchandise out of our own pockets. Most of our items are in collaboration with Glidan or Champion.

Whose Sahaita?

Sahaita is a non-profit organization who launched in 2005. We are working with them directly to provide Sahaita (support) for the farmers. Sahaita helps farmers with debt, funeral needs after they pass away or Sahaita adopts the family of the farmer who passed away and will provide them with a home, food, medical health, school and all other importance. The second option is that we give the money to the family of the farmer without adopting them.

Sahaita is a well known organization, who works with integrity, lots of their information and previous work is posted on their website. In the last year they have opened up many orphanages as well as supported farmers and their families. Suicide rates for farmers have always been high, they have been helping since 2005.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

No matter where you reside, this isn't just a matter of India. We already have everyone knowing about this in India, there is no point of talking about a serious matter in the area it's happening. Instead we need to stay up to date and continue posting about this daily so that this problem can reach an international phase and be spread worldwide. On top of that donations through us or other people are another way to help. But, please be careful when donating to make sure the money will be going to the right place. Lastly, depending on where you live most cities are doing rally's to raise awareness and let the farmers know that we stand with them. When you become a part of a rally, the farmers regain hope seeing other countries caring and the rate of suicide decreases. If your city is not having a rally, please reach out to your local gurdwara (temple) and attempt to request a rally.

OUR POLICY

Our shipping is worldwide and usually takes an approximate time of 12 days. However, since so many orders come in our fulfillment before shipping takes a longer time (so it may take awhile for you to receive you tracking info). We can’t guarantee exact delivery dates because we have a few different fulfillment centers and the closest one to your address is the one who fulfills your order. Always look out for your tracking number which you will receive when your order has been fulfilled and has shipped.

We have a no refund/exchange policy so it’s super important to make sure you place an order for the correct size, quantity and color. We will be unable to change it once the order has been placed, this is because we do not hold back on the money, the donations are sent off right when a purchase is made. Thankyou for your support and understanding.
