Due to the middlemen between the farmers products and market, farmers are not getting a good price for their products. Farming sector is so huge that government can also not procure all the items produced by the farmers. FCI does that to some extent.
Subsidising them properly will require a huge amount of exchequer which Govt is not in a position to do.
Farmers are the backbone of our country but unfortunately we are not able to give them proper price for their products. Government is paying huge salaries to the government staff and other public sector employees but is not able to do anything concrete for the farmers. It is a difficult situation which has made the small to medium farmers life miserable and some of them are selling their lands.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Farmers are facing a lot of difficulties. They put all their money and efforts into the land and finally what they get is not known. So they are thinking of selling their lands and keeping that money in the banks so that at least they will get some fixed money monthly.
Coming to the Environment aspect, we have to explore areas and we have to start plantations wherever possible in whatever way it is possible. That may compensate for the land we are losing and deforestation is to be stopped. Even rooftop plantation is to be thought of to compensate for greenery loss.
The above are some real factors and contributing for the movement of these land owners to cities and selling their fertile land to the real Estate business class. Of course, in simple terms, we can't hold back our children who prefer to move Foreign soil for their betterment, same is the case with Indian peasant too.
