The NSS 70th round survey on land and livestock holdings (LHS) was conducted in rural areas of the country. The main objective of the survey on Land and Livestock Holdings (LHS) is to generate basic quantitative information on the agrarian structure of the country, which is relevant to land policy. The quantitative information to be collected in the land and livestock holdings survey can be categorised into the three broad aspects of land ownership holdings, operational holdings and ownership of livestock. The survey on Land and Livestock Holding has been designed to collect information on (i) particulars of land (owned, leased-out, leased-in and otherwise possessed) of the household, (ii) location of land, (iii) area, (iv) duration of possession, (v) number of lessor/lessee households, (vi) terms of lease, (vii) land use during July 2012 to December 2012/January 2013 to June 2013/whole agricultural year (July 2012 to June 2013), (viii) whether irrigated, (ix) sources of irrigation, etc. Information on number of livestock, poultry, duckery, etc., owned by the household as on the date of survey will also be collected. Besides collection of information on land and livestock, information will be collected on some household characteristics such as (i) household classification, (ii) social group, (iii) religion, (iv) whether the household operated any land on Jhum cultivation during last 365 days, etc. Some information on demographic particulars from each of the household members will also be collected such as (i) sex, (ii) age, (iii) general education level, (iv) whether associated with the household operational holding, etc.
Using the information collected in this survey, different indicators of ownership holding, operational holding, pattern in land use, detailed types of crop production/animal farming activities of the households, seasonal variation in household operational holding, ownership of livestock, poultry, duckery, etc., can be generated for the rural areas of the country.
These statistical indicators are required for planning, policy formulation and decision making at various levels within the government and outside. The results of the survey will be of use to the Department of Agriculture & Cooperation, Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries, National Accounts Division, etc. These will also be used by various users, researchers and policy makers.
