Abstract

This paper examines the context of the establishment of the Agricultural Produce Market Commission by the Bihar government through the enactment of the Agricultural Produce Markets Act, 1960 and the reasons for its repeal in 2006. It looks at the Act’s constitutionality and the unconstitutionality of its repeal in light of the orders by the Supreme Court and the Patna High Court, as well as the Indian Constitution. Agriculture is a state subject under the Constitution; the paper examines the central Bypass APMC Act, 2020 and its repeal. The paper undertakes a comparative study to trace the impact on agricultural marketing infrastructure and farmers' plight. The paper draws inferences from comparing APMC with government schools and hospitals created for economic justice, equity, and equality.
