22 July 2021, New Delhi: In order to resolve the disputes relating to Farm Acts under Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion & Facilitation) Act 2020, and Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act 2020, a quick and cost effective dispute resolution mechanism is prescribed for the farmers at sub-division level through conciliation board and further by Sub-Divisional Authority and District Collector.
The executive officers at Sub Divisional level and District Collectors perform the functions relating to land revenue including maintaining land records and resolving the disputes relating to crops and land. Thus, they have sufficient field experiences relating to agriculture & land disputes as well as on judicial practices. In view of the above, they are more equipped to adjudicate on all legal and contractual disputes emanating from these Farm Legislations.
This information was given in a written reply by the Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Mr. Narendra Singh Tomar in Lok Sabha.
