State government had issued instructions for Bhavantar Yojana for garlic crop for the year 2018-19 on April 9th, 2018. Accordingly the payable Bhavantar amount was fixed at maximum Rs 800 per quintal then. Had the garlic been sold for a price below Rs 1600, then considering its quality to be below standard, there was provision not to give benefit.
