The government is expected to raise the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for paddy by 200 to 1,750 per quintal, reports said. To boost farmers' incomes, the government in Budget 2018 said it would fix a support price at least 1.5 times the production cost. Among the major kharif crops, the maximum hike in MSP is likely to be for ragi.
