President Ram Nath Kovind has promulgated two ordinances aimed at giving a boost to rural India by raising income of farmers, the Union Agriculture Ministry said on Friday.

These ordinances are the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion & Facilitation) Ordinance 2020 and Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Ordinance 2020.

"After the announcement of the landmark decisions by the Government of India for reforms in the agricultural sector for raising the income of the farmers as part of the Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, the President of India has promulgated the two ordinances with the aim of giving a boost to rural India for farmers engaged in agriculture and allied activities," a Ministry statement said.

Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Friday wrote to all the Chief Ministers informing them of the Ordinances and solicited their cooperation in implementation of the reforms, it added.

He stressed the need for their continued support in the development and growth of the agriculture sector in the new reformed environment.
