Haryana alleges disparity in cotton MSP

Feb '10
A complaint by the Haryana government made to the agricultural ministry has been passed on to the textile ministry which alleged that the minimum support price (MSP) of cotton for the state have been fixed at a lower level than that for Punjab.

Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Chief Minister of Haryana, in last October wrote to the agriculture minister Sharad Pawar, notifying him regarding the disparity in the rate of MSP fixed for Punjab and Haryana for same kind of cotton.

He indicated that the MSP for F-414, H-777 and J-34 varieties of cotton was fixed at Rs 2,700 per quintal in Haryana, whereas a higher rate of Rs 2,800 per quintal was fixed for Punjab.

He alleged that there should be parity in the MSP for both the States as agricultural conditions and practices adopted are identical in both the states.

The officials in defense of the allegations stated that the difference in MSP in Punjab and Haryana is attributable to the classification of F-414, H-777 and J-34 varieties under different staple.

Also they added that the issue was not on government's priority list as the market prices of these varieties are above their MSPs.
