Sodhi on doubling farmers’ income

R S Sodhi, managing director of India’s largest dairy brand Amul, says the farmers’ income can only be doubled by providing for buffer stocking and market linkages, reports Business Standard.

In an interview to the daily, Sodhi says India must protect its farmers by not signing the free trade agreements.

On how the farmers can double their income in the current situation, Sodhi says they can do so on deriving from their present income.

He also revealed that the average farmer income in India is around Rs 6,500 per month as per National Sample Survey Office.
