NEW DELHI: Amid concerns over use of poor quality of agro-chemicals in the country, the government in Rajya Sabha on Monday introduced the Pesticide Management Bill, 2020 which seeks to regulate use, trade and manufacture of hazardous farm inputs in a better way with an ultimate goal to reduce risk of such chemicals on human health, animals, soil, water bodies and environment.

The proposed legislation has provisions of stringent punishment for sale/trade or manufacture of spurious and banned pesticides/insecticides or for violation of any other concerned rules.
