    October, 2013

    A major gap in understanding the situation in India with respect to land and its control is the takeover of common lands, which rarely figures in discourses on land. The Society for Promotion of Wastelands Development (SPWD, New Delhi) and RRI commissioned case studies on the takeover of common lands in India in an attempt to fill this gap. This paper is a compilation of those studies. Based on these case studies, an international conference was held in December 2012 to reflect the current situation and discuss possible policy actions.

    This paper assembles data at the
    all-India level and for the village of Palanpur, Uttar

    Public knowledge about India's

    is at the core of the livelihood of the large majority of
    the poor, especially in rural and tribal areas and
    determines the extent to which increasingly scarce natural
    resources are managed. Land policies and administration are
    critical determinants of the transaction cost associated
