Land, Labour, and Employment in an Eastern Uttar Pradesh Village, 1994–2012
The chapter traces changes in land and labour relations in a village in eastern Uttar Pradesh over a period of about two decades. It analyses the substantial changes that have occurred in participation in labour markets across sexes and social groups both at the local level, and non-locally, through migration. Changes in land ownership and operation by the different social groups are also analysed. The findings show that traditional relations of dominance and dependence are coming under greater challenge. Moreover, due to the emerging constraints in agricultural production, access to non-agricultural jobs and incomes is coming to play a more important role in inter-group dynamics.
