One of the reasons the Narendra Modi government has cited for introducing the three farm laws is to free farmers from the ‘clutches’ of arhatiyas or commission agents. Time and again, PM Modi and experts have talked about eliminating middlemen from agricultural trade, but farmers say this will take away their source of easy loans too. ThePrint's Urjita Bhardwaj and Samyak Pandey travelled across Punjab to talk to farmers and commission agents to learn more about their relationship and how farmers are completely dependent on commission agents for their daily needs.
