The Status of Tenant Farmers/Sharecroppers (Bataidars) and Marginal Farmers in Bihar

A Report

The study captures the real situation of share croppers in Bihar who are extremely vulnerable and  insecure. They have to fully remain dependent on the mercy of landowners who can evict the sharecroppers without any prior notice since there is no written agreement and also corner all benefits/ subsidies. After the study, one day consultation workshop was organized on 28 May 2016 for opinion drive on building consensus for preparation of Charter for Ensuring Rights of Agricultural labourers / Sharecroppers on the issues of landless / marginal agricultural labourers  in Bihar.
