The states can administer agriculture marketing as per their agri-marketing regulations, under which, the State is divided into various market areas and each market area is administered by a separate APMC which will impose its own marketing regulation that include fees. Also,The States can promote e-trading as per their APMC Act and enact suitable provisions under the act by their State Agricultural Marketing Board/APMC.
