The decision was confirmed when farmers are protesting for more than six months outside Delhi.

The Farmers are demanding repeal of three farm reform laws and legislation to guarantee the MSP for all farmers.

Saiyuki Kisan Morcha (SKM) said,

The announcement was just a jumla (false promise) as it did not account for the total cost of production. No tool secures that every farmer can get at minimum the MSP as the flat price in local markets. Thus, this is a meaningless concept as far as farmers are worry, and that is why this movement has been asking for an authorized entitlement for all farmers so that a remunerative MSP can be ensured for all farmers.

Saiyuki Kisan Morcha (SKM) also noted that some increases, especially for Maize, did not even keep step with inflation.

SKM added The Farmers are concerned about the meaningless concept, and farmers are also asking for authorizing privilege to all farmers

Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar repeatedly says that MSPs will stay after the meeting.

The hike in rates was proof of the Centre's commitment.
