Agricultural development and land tenure problems of a densely populated region in India

, : Agricultural development and land tenure problems of a densely populated region in India. Economic Planning 25(2): 4, 9-12

An attempt is made to evaluate the present system of land tenure in India in terms of its adequacy in providing a structurally viable base. This is particularly in view of the so-called Green Revolution which has made significant strides on a limited basis in some states like the Punjab. A brief outline is supplied of the development of the tenure system from as early as 1500 B.C. Events under British rule are also summarized.
