Changes in Land Ownership Pattern - An Aspect of Structural Change in Indian Agriculture



Changes in agrarian structure are, usually, slow. But they indicate directions in which the economy is moving. One expression of such change is the changes in the land holding pattern. So long as land is the key variable in the economy of rural households, changes in size distribution of holding have obvious significance. In this paper such changes are documented with the help of N.S.S. rounds for the decade of 1960s. The paper also examines the rate of market induced, policy induced and demographic factors in explaining changes in land holding pattern.
