Also affected production work in agricultural machine units, labor shortage – Also affected production work in agricultural machine units, labor shortage

In the second wave of Corona, agricultural machine units are severely affected. On the one hand, there is a shortage of labor and, on the other hand, the rise in raw material prices has also influenced the prices of agricultural machinery. As a result, farmers are unwilling to buy the equipment at a higher price. In such a situation, agricultural machinery manufacturers are concerned.
According to agricultural machinery entrepreneurs, Varanasi is the second largest producer of agricultural machinery, including forage cutters, after Punjab. But this time the second wave of Corona also caused great damage to the industry. Last year when all industries were closed, agricultural machinery was made, but this time the wild boom in commodities such as iron, pig iron and other metals has increased the price of agricultural machinery. Because of this, the market demand has ended and some factories are closed, while others are about to close. Increased commodity prices have made agricultural implements expensive, making it difficult for small and medium-sized farmers to purchase agricultural implements.
At the same time, most of the artisans associated with this industry are from Bihar, Odisha, Jharkhand, but this time before Holi went to their homes in Bihar and Jharkhand, they have not returned.
GST more expensive
The entrepreneurs said farm equipment had never been taxed since independence. Now it has been taxed in one fell swoop to bring agricultural implements within the scope of the GST, which has made agricultural machinery more expensive. The entrepreneurs called on the government to make agricultural equipment as tax-free as before.
The cost price has increased due to the increase in raw materials, agricultural machinery has become expensive. Small, medium and micro-agricultural equipment manufacturers face double wounds. – Rajesh Kumar Singh, Vice President of the Agricultural Machinery Manufacturing Association
There is a shortage of workers and workers in the units. Increased raw material prices have affected the production of agricultural implements. Agricultural equipment has also become expensive because of the GST. Bharat Bhushan Gupta, Secretary of the Agricultural Machinery Manufacturing Association
Forage machines, rice, field plows, hand pumps, etc. are produced for different crops, but the prices of raw materials have broken the backs of the entrepreneurs. – Rajkumar Rastogi, agricultural machinery manufacturer
The government should be careful. Raw material prices need to be cut and taxes abolished in order to provide farmers with cheaper agricultural equipment. – Dinesh Gupta, President of the Agricultural Machinery Manufacturing Association Varanasi
