Motherland India is an agrarian society where close to 58% its population get their daily bread and butter from agriculture related activities. Indian agriculture machinery was in dire need of reform owing to abysmal condition of farmers and obsolete trading practices, therefore The Central government in order to revitalizing farming, fulfilling its promise of double farmers' income by 2022, and enhancing profit in farming came up with three bills which as per the government was a ‘historic’ step, these bills were hastily enacted in the parliament to form three separate acts namely The Farmers’ Produce Trade And Commerce (Promotion And Facilitation) Act, 2020(FPTC Act), The Farmers’ Empowerment and Protection Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act 2020 and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020 but these acts faced uproar from some farmers unions and states which accused the government of violating federal structure of the constitution, ignoring the say of various stakeholders in agriculture and highlighting some of the lacunae of the acts, but a meticulous study of farm acts indicate that these are good acts capable of invigorating Indian agriculture, with improper implementation.
