Why did the government raise rabi crop msp?

The Government wants to enhance food security by encouraging rabi crops like oilseeds, pulses, and shree anna/millets which are basic food and nassacity of living. The revised price will help farmers to get the genuine rates from the market and their income will boost. 

The MSP is the minimum prices to sell the crops in the market thus any merchant or dealer can not take the advantage of the farmer condition and can not compel them to buy at low rates. The goal is to support farmers in oilseed and pulse cultivation by offering financial assistance and high-quality seeds.

In addition to the Price Policy, the government has launched a number of programs, including the National Food Security Mission (NFSM), the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY), and the National Mission on Oilseeds and Oil Palm (NMOOP). The government has also introduced the Kisan Rin Portal (KRP), KCC Ghar Abhiyaan, and Weather Information Network Data Systems (WINDS) to empower farmers in making timely decisions regarding their crops.  

It is an effort to extend the benefits of the Kisan Credit Card (KCC) Scheme to every farmer across the country. These programs seek to improve the lives of farmers around the country, transform agriculture, increase financial inclusion, and maximize data utilization.
