North India Incurring $410 Mln in Daily Losses Due to Farmers' Protests, Says Industry Body

Thousands of farmers, mainly from India's agricultural states of Punjab and Haryana, have been protesting at Delhi's Singhu, Tikri, and Ghaziabad borders for over two months against three farm laws passed by the Narendra Modi government last September.

North India is currently incurring l410 million per day in losses, "from the value chain and transport disruption because of the farmers' protests," the country’s key industry body Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) told Sputnik.

According to Deepak Sood, the Secretary-General of ASSOCHAM, the non-government trade association and advocacy group, the ongoing farmer protest has “severely affected the inter-connected economies of the region of north-Indian states like Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh".
