Noncultivating Households Owning Land in an Agrarian Economy

Some Observations from Andhra Pradesh

(p.199) 8 Noncultivating Households Owning Land in an Agrarian Economy
The Land Question in India

Oxford University Press

Rural economic structure is witnessing incremental changes as a response to public policy interventions. One of the aspects of this change is the increasing importance of households who own land but do not cultivate the land constraining the long-term growth in the economy. The chapter, firstly, presents evidences (from secondary sources as well as primary survey in nine villages in erstwhile Andhra Pradesh) on the importance of noncultivating households owning land. Secondly, reasons for these households not to sell land are also presented. This chapter suggests two conditions, which encourage the growth of noncultivating households: increasing land prices and rental income earned by these households.

Keywords:   economic structure, noncultivating households, Andhra Pradesh, rental income, land prices
