The real cause of farmer suicides is that the cost of farming is more than the profit from it. Laws/Gazette notifications proposed by RRG to rectify these are (these will come after the three line law, Citizens voice Gazette notifications)-

RRG proposals to improve Agriculture , Food Supply

1. Right to Recall National/State Agriculture Minister and Right to Recall National/State Irrigation Minister will reduce corruption in Agriculture and Irrigation. It will also improve warehousing and number of cold storages.
2. Increase in support prices will enable farmers to pay for canal maintenance and water charges
3. The drafts of EAS.01 and EAS.03 will improve water supply
4. The metering of agriculture water will reduce wastage, improve supply
5. Ban harmful pesticides, cancel subsidies to all pesticides.
6. Ban exports of all agricultural goods including basmati, meat, eggs, milk, cotton etc
7. Ban Jatropa growing
8. Cancel subsidies to chicken, eggs, meat
9. Cancel subsidies on chemical fertilizer, raise support price
10. Cancel subsidies to tractors, raise support price
11. Improve ration card system by Right to Recall District Supply Officer and giving choice to citizens to change Ration Card Owner
12. Add pulses to Ration Card System.

I summarize the CITIZENS`VOICE/JANTA KI AWAZ gazette-notification law as
o If a citizen wants, then by visiting Collector‟s office, he can put Complaint/RTI application/Proposal on PM‟s website.
o If a citizen supports an application, complain etc, then by visiting Talati‟s (Patwari etc) office,
citizen can register his support to an Complaint/RTI application/Proposal on PM`s website for a Rs 3/- fee.
CITIZENS VOICE Gazette notification
1)if a woman voter or dalit
voter or senior citizen voter or poor voter or farmer voter or ANY citizen- voter in his district submits a Right to Information application or complaint against corruption or any affidavit to the Collector and requests to be put on the website of Prime Minister, the Collector or his designated clerk will issue a serial number and put that affidavit etc on the website of the Prime Minister for a fee of Rs 20 per page.
2)if a woman voter or a dalit voter or a , senior citizen voter or a poor voter or a farmer voter or ANY citizen-voter , comes with voter ID, and specifies Yes-No on an RTI application, Village complaint or any affidavit submitted in clause-1, the Patwari will enter his Officer Yes-No on the PM‟s website with his voter-ID and give a printed receipt for Rs 3 fee. The Patwari will also allow citizen to change his Yes-No for Rs 3 fee. The fee will be Re 1 for BPL card holder.
3)This CITIZENS`VOICE/JANTA KI AWAZ GN is not a referendum procedure. The Yes-No count will not be a binding on PM, CMs, officers, If over 37 crore women voters, dalit voters, senior citizen voters, poor voters, farmer voters or ANY 37 crore citizen-voters register Yes on a given affidavit, then the PM may or need not take necessary action on the RTI application affidavit ; or the PM may or need not resign. PM‟s decision will be final.
