Cotton buying: Who's benefited?
The State cotton buying is turning to a fix this year. Until now almost all centres in District have received very low amount of cotton from farmers. Private parties are biggest beneficiaries offering good competitive rates and cash to farmers.
The sources in cotton farming suggest another inside picture. Considering huge financial turnover in the cotton and State's softening policies towards farmers, the business lobby is dominating the field. There are two categories of farmers - Some are really weak ones needing immediate selling of their crops to keep up their bread and butter and another lobby is rich enough to fill up their stores waiting for good prices. Many of weaker section farmer sales this crop to Government agencies at assured prices. The Trading lobby is attacking this majority of group and getting this stock stored in their warehouses. This well politically supported lobby then starts demanding more pricing for crops from Government agencies. Once Government announce reviewed prices, they sale out this crop and earn handsome profits in trade. If Government sticks with the prices, these traders sale the crop to nearby states trade agencies. The rich farmers' class is in win-win situation in both cases.
The agriculture sector is finally caught up in the political vote bank scenario where real worth beneficiaries are not benefited by our current mechanism. We need to rework on our policies to make things more effective.

to get Bills: VAT revolutionise Jewelry Business:
The Maharashtra State Government has enforced Value Added Tax (VAT) with effect from 01st April 2005. The new VAT Tax regime has VAT Tax rate of just 1% on Jewelry. This lowest tax rate has eased customer's headache of buying these valuable articles in cash. Having a bill for such purchase will not only add to Government revenue but will also enhance our security and claim aspects in case of burglary or any other mischief.
The Jewelers are also happy over the move and can now feel the peace behind the logic. However the Jewelry business functional in cash transactions has not yet digested the concept in totality. Many shops are still charging this VAT Tax as additional amount to customers but many reputed ones are absorbing the cost in rates.
So being a good customer, we should now onwards always demand for Bill whenever we are buying any kind of jewelry stuff whether it may be Gold, Diamond, Silver, or any other valuables.
