  • In the intro, mention the farmers’ demand for legal backing to the MSP.
  • In the body, mention the brief background of the provision and objectives of MSP. In the next part, mention challenges such as fiscal viability, procurement challenges, impact on farmers, WTO challenges etc.
  • In the way forward mention need for moving to an income support scheme, focusing on R&D in agriculture etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need to avoid such measures which could harm all the stakeholders in the long run.
