The Government realises the importance of agricultural sector for the growth and development of the nation’s economy. With nearly 58 per cent of its people continuing to depend upon agriculture for their livelihood, the critical role of the sector cannot be gain said.
Agriculture sector is also highly vulnerable to the vicissitudes of nature that impact the crop enterprise at its production stage. Further, the sector is also exposed to the current weaknesses of the agricultural marketing system.
The annual income of a farmer depends upon both yield and the price that his produce fetches. While the Government has rolled out large number of programmes to improve yield levels on a sustainable basis, it recognises the need for creating a competitive market structure in the country that will generate marketing efficiency.
Only when the market is integrated over space and time, can market efficiency be real.
DRAWBACKS OF EXISTING APMC
It was in this situation that the model APMC Acts were circulated to the states in 2003. But the model has remained a mere blueprint in many states. Even the states, who have implemented this act, have created entry barriers by prescribing either prohibitive license fees for setting up such markets, or the minimum distance between private markets and APMC markets. Thus, even this act has been partially successful.
Karnataka model: In this respect, Karnataka stands out from the other states. Its Rashtriya e Market Services Pvt. Ltd (ReMS), a joint venture with NCDEX Spot Exchange Ltd, is a good working example of what the model APMC envisaged.

Conclusion: Agriculture is in the state list of the Constitution, and the unified agricultural market can be executed only in collaboration with the states. The states have already taken the lead in policy innovation, be it labour laws in Rajasthan, land acquisition reforms in Tamil Nadu or land pooling for urbanization in Andhra Pradesh. The Karnataka model of agricultural markets reforms should be seen as a similar case—a state innovation that can guide the whole country.
