The Union Minister wrote letters to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal. In fact, a delegation from the Farmers’ Organization came to meet him who explained how the customs clearance was delayed. The organization told Gadkari how customs clearance for mechanical sprays and consignment of their spare parts is being delayed. They are used for pesticide control.

The spraying equipment was sent to urban areas due to the Covid-19 epidemic, which resulted in a shortage of these devices in the fields. As a result, the companies decided to import equipment that has been held up at ports as customs officials decided to do 100 percent checks of consignments sent from China.

In his letter to Sitharaman and Goyal, Transport and MSME Minister Nitin Gadkari have demanded priority in approving imported agricultural equipment. Although they have not named any country from where such goods are being imported, most of such spraying equipment comes from China.
