Increased by 2-7% in MSP for wheat and other winter crops.

Due to the early harvest of some kharif crops in particular areas, the government has announced an increase in minimum support prices (MSPs) of 2–7% for rabi crops. Wheat and masur (lentil), two important winter crops that are thought to have recorded lower-than-expected performance in the previous two years, have received a maximum 7% rise. The MSP of wheat, a key winter cereal, has been hiked by Rs 150 a quintal to Rs 2,275/quintal for the 2024-25 marketing season (April-March), from Rs 2,125/quintal now.
