HP: Government Apathy Fuels Apple Farmers Agitation

THE  apple growers in Himachal Pradesh are protesting since July 11, 2022, on their  20 demands. The GST on apple cartons was increased from 12 per cent to 18 per cent. Therefore the cost of a carton increased by Rs 25 per carton and the cost of trays increased by Rs 200 per bundle. The cost of other packaging materials also increased from 32 per cent to 80 per cent. 

This caused anger among the apple farmers who are already in crisis, due to the implementation of neo-liberal policies of the state and central governments.
