Egg is not coming from other states
Nawab Ali Akbar, chairman of the Uttar Pradesh Poultry Farmers Association, told TV9 that now eggs from other states cannot come to UP. The new law has become a boon for the farmers. Now the government rate of one egg has been fixed at 4 rupees 80 paise. Earlier we had to follow the market of Barwala, now we consider the market of UP as other state and decide our price. This has given the biggest relief to the farmers. An egg costs the farmer about Rs.3. In such a situation, it was difficult for the farmers to extract the cost for many months. Now he himself will be able to take care of his poultry. After getting a good price, there will be no problem even in buying grains and maize.
