Stubble Burning Fines for Farmers

Some good news that Localcircles long standing demand of penalising farmers is being accepted.

Farmers with land under 2 acres to pay 2500 fine for stubble burning, those with 2-5 acres to pay 5000 fine and those above 5 acres to pay 15000 fine.

If people have specific ideas on how this should be enforced please share the same as the Govt may not know how to do the same when they catch em.

All they can do is make arrest and only release when fine is paid for the seriousness to come.

Please share inputs! Lc manager please consider this for survey if appropriate more

Rice varieties with low silica content in paddy straw so that straw can be used as animal fodder. In J &K zero stubble burning problem is there as all the paddy straw is used as animal fodder because of low silica content in most of varieties. more  
Penalising the farmers on per acre basis, so that the richer farmers are fined more. Also the rates per acre should increase with 1) farmers' land holding and 2) for multiple "crimes". This whole history to be computerised for ease of record retrieval. On other hand some incentives should also be declared to encourage law enforcement. more  
No fines. Government spends a lot on physical infrastructure, going up by upto 1% of gross domestic product, that also helps those already well-off, diesel subsidy a case in point, when many cars are owned by the rich, benefiting them as these given the rampant dieselisation of private transportation, but what about social infrastructure! Diesel causes so much pollution. India remains hugely income unequal. Top rich, even within India earn over a hundred times more than poor. In the developed world, this proportion, except the worlds richest 50 or say 10,000, could be at a maximum, averaging approximately 10 times. Rich, through market forces, as also lobbying government, remain the rule makers over those following the rules, read the farmers, also the poor. Government for example unilaterally, imposed lockdown. There should have been proactive participation. That needs a re-look. Why the situation arose have this pradicament? Please incentivise cleaner ways to dispose stubble, using technological solutions, bio-composting being one. more  
India must go like European Union to solve the local issues more  
Government should do this work as they do several bad loan write off of businessmen worth around Rs. 5-6 lakhs per annum. more
