It has been recently reported that Farmers who are protesting against three farm laws have taken a step back and are likely to form a committee to further discuss their grievances with the central government. 

Farmer unions and their representatives had earlier demanded that the laws be repealed and had stated that they will not accept any compromise. Farmer leaders had welcomed the Supreme Court of India's stay order on the implementation of the farm laws but rejected the committee appointed by the Supreme Court.

However, after months of agitation (Since August 2020) and seeing no backtracking from the centre, farmers are expected to finally negotiate on various terms regarding newly implemented farm laws with the government. 

Earlier farmer unions had maintained a hardline stance in which they were not ready to listen to the centre's demand for a mutual discussion on farmers' issues. Certain experts have said that a lot of farmers want to return to their fields as the crop-cutting season is due to arrive. 

The 2020–2021 Indian farmers' protest is an ongoing protest against three farm acts that were passed by the Parliament of India in September 2020.
