Suicides by farmers: SC seeks response from Centre, states
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.
