Devesh Roy and PK Joshi authored an op-ed in India’s Financial Express about the need for new contract farming laws.

Roy and Joshi argue the main objective is to "assure procurement from farmers at remunerative prices, while mitigating risks arising due to price fluctuations, especially of perishable commodities."
