  • Farmers may be given remunerative prices initially, but eventually they will be at the mercy of big retailersIit will
  • It disintegrate established supply chains by encouraging monopolies of global retailers

It will cut intermediaries between farmers and the retailers, thereby helping them get more money for their produce
It will help in bringing down prices at retail level and calm inflation
Big retail chains will invest in supply chains which will reduce wastage, estimated at 40 percent in the case of fruits and vegetables
Small and medium enterprises will have a bigger market, along with better technology and branding
It will bring much-needed foreign investment into the country, along with technology and global best-practices
