The Supreme Court on Tuesday stayed the implementation of the three farm laws until further orders and formed a four-member committee to negotiate with the farmers on the acts.
“Implementation of the three laws stayed until further orders,” said Chief Justice of India SA Bobde.
Farmers have been protesting at different borders of the national capital since November 26, 2020, against the three newly enacted farm laws – Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020
