Maharashtra

Maharashtra (Marathi: महाराष्ट्र mahārāṣṭra, pronounced [məharaːʂʈrə] ( listen)) is a state located in India. The word Maharashtra is said to be derived from tribal name Rathi or Ratha (chariot fighters) who were great fighters at the time of Mauryan empire and thus making the country name as Maha-Ratha of which the Sanskritized version is Maharashtra. The other theory is that it is derived from the combination of word Mahar and Rashtra giving Maharashtra (Pali – Maharattha) on the name of powerful Mahar tribe of this area;[5] just like Gujarat (Pali – Gujrattha) formed from Gurjara and Rashtra. It is the second most populous after Uttar Pradesh and third largest state by area in India. It is the richest state in India, contributing to 15% of the country’s industrial output and 13.2% of its GDP in 2005-06.[6][7][8][9]
Maharashtra is bordered by the Arabian Sea to the west, Gujarat and the Union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli to the northwest, Madhya Pradesh to the northeast, Chhattisgarh to the east, Karnataka to the south, Andhra Pradesh to the southeast, and Goa to the southwest. The state covers an area of 307,731 km2 (118,816 sq mi) or 9.84% of the total geographical area of India. Mumbai, the capital city of the state, is India’s largest city and the financial capital of the nation. Marathi is the official language of the state, while English and Hindi are also widely spoken throughout Maharashtra.

APMC

The Agricultural Produce Market Committee is a marketing board established by the state governments of India (e.g., Karnataka andMaharashtra).The state government of Karnataka,in order to facilitate farmers to sell their produce and get reasonable price constituted APMC in many towns. Most of the APMC have market yard where traders and other marketing agents are provided godowns and shops for purchase of agriculture produce from farmers.Farmers can sell their produce to agents or traders under supervision of APMC.

Apparently farmers cannot sell produce outside the APMC mechanism. This makes them vulnerable to traders’ and marketing agents’ price manipulations. The Govt. of India is considering improving the ecosystem to benefit all parties involved.

The MSAMB runs 295 APMC in Maharashtra.
