He says that farmers can sell their products anywhere they want. there is no rule for that. you can read more about this act from government sites.

What is the role of APMC?


As our culture is agriculture Agricultural Marketing is a vibrant subject for academics and administrators. Though India is gifted with a competitive market, higher educational institutions, developed banking system, the marketers are yet to build on these strengths. As a process, Agricultural Marketing starts with a decision to produce a saleable farm commodity and involves all aspects of the market structure of a system. There are bottlenecks in the agricultural marketing systems like improper warehouses, inadequate market information, the dominance of middlemen, lack of transport and communication.

We can see that with faster changes in and through technology, agrarian issues are also becoming pertinent. our agriculture is, despite reforms, is vulnerable, not merely due to natural factors but also due to inadequate institutional strength and resilience. Under these circumstances, a Second Green Revolution is expected to clear the mess and keep the nation on the right path.

The government is expected to receive in the Second Green Revolution. To improve the marketing system encouraging cooperative marketing, the establishment of regulated markets, and grading, storehouse and warehousing are essential. In this connection, the role of the Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee (APMC) is pivotal in promoting agricultural marketing.
