Why are farmers committing suicide? SC seeks response from Centre, states, RBI

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday sought responses from the Centre, state governments, Union Territory and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to examine the likely reasons behind suicides by farmers.

A bench comprising Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice NV Ramana directed them to respond within four weeks.

The bench noted that it is a “sensitive matter” of larger public interest involving farmers throughout the country.

The court was hearing a plea filed by NGO Citizens Resource and Action and Initiative on issues related to farmers.
