Suicides by farmers: SC seeks response from Centre, states
The Hindu   


The Supreme Court today sought responses from the Centre, state governments, union territories and the RBI to examine the likely reasons behind suicides by farmers.

A bench comprising Chief Justice J.S. Khehar and Justice N.V. Ramana asked them to respond within four weeks.

The bench said 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.
