TIMEFRAME expected from 6/11/2017, 12:00 AM until 6/12/2017, 11:59 PM (Asia/Calcutta). COUNTRY/REGION Maharashtra


Farmers in the western state of Maharashtra temporarily halted a protest movement on Sunday, June 11, after the state government promised to address their demands, namely to waive all farm loans. However, if no concrete action is taken by July 25, Maharashtra farmers have vowed to resume protests.


On June 1, farmers across Maharashtra launched an indefinite strike, with protesters preventing produce trucks from transporting fruits, vegetables, and milk to major cities. Food suppliers had warned that the strike could result in shortages and increased food prices.


Individuals in India are advised to monitor the situation and to stay away from all demonstrations.

As a reminder, some Western governments advise their citizens against nonessential travel to the west of Jammu and Kashmir states and against all travel to the border region with Pakistan (direct vicinity of the Line of Control) due to the high threat of terrorism.
