The Supreme Court-appointed 3 member committee for the purpose of holding talks between the Central Government and the farmers to resolve the protests over the three contentious farm laws has submitted its report to the Apex Court in a sealed cover.

As reported by news agency ANI, the committee's report states that around 85 farmer organizations have been consulted to find a solution to the deadlock with the protesting farmers who have been camping at the borders around Delhi for over 4 months.

Quoting agricultural economist Anil Ghanvat (who is one of the members of the committee), news portal Hindustan Times reported that the report has been submitted in the Supreme Court in a sealed cover envelope on March 19.

The Supreme Court is set to hear the matter on 05th April.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday (12th January) constituted a 4-member committee for the purpose of holding talks between the Central Government and the farmers to resolve the protests over the three contentious farm laws.

A notable feature of the composition of the committee was that all four members- BS Mann, Ashok Gulati, Dr Pramod Kumar Joshi and Anil Ghanwat- have expressed open views in support of the implementation of farm laws.

However, later on, S. Bhupinder Singh Mann recused himself from the 4-member committee constituted by Supreme Court

The Supreme Court formed the committee while suspending the implementation of three farm laws until further orders.

"We are going to suspend the implementation of the three farm laws until further orders. We will also constitute a Committee," the Supreme Court had said while hearing a batch of petitions challenging the Farm Laws/ seeking removal of protesting farmers from Delhi borders.

The three contentious farm laws are: Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act.
