Kerala Farmers Happy With the Minimum Billing Price

No big variations in the Indian cashew kernel but the interstate raw cashew trade is facing some problems in Kerala. In order to help the farmers, the government officials are trying to fix a minimum billing price and their minimum price is said to be Rs80/kilo. Traders are ready to give Taxes at Rs80/kilo but they are not ready for this minimum billing price. According to some officials, if the billing price is around Rs70/kilo and the traders offer Taxes on Rs80/kilo, this is nothing but a donation to the government. If and only if the selling price is above Rs80/kilo, they can permit raw cashew movement through their check-posts.
