New Delhi, January 12, 2021: The Supreme Court today stayed all three agricultural laws enacted in September last year. Today’s hearing has been completed and the Supreme Court has ordered that the implementation of the three laws be stayed. Along with this, a committee has also been formed.

Petitions challenging the agricultural laws and petitions related to farmer agitations were heard in the Supreme Court today. The Supreme Court has stayed all three agricultural laws till further orders and ordered the formation of a committee. Earlier, the court reprimanded the farmers for not going to the committee and said that we want a solution to the problem, but if you want to go on indefinite agitation, you can.

It is possible that the Supreme Court may set up a high-level committee headed by a former Chief Justice of the country with the intention of resolving this deadlock between the government and the farmers.

A bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justice AS Bopanna and Justice V Ramasubramanian on Monday had indicated during the hearing of the case that it may pass orders in different parts on issues related to agricultural laws and the farmers’ movement.
