    The stated objective of land policy in India has shifted from redistribution through land reform to ownership through land acquisition in the period between 1950 and 2014. Sub-national governments that dealt with land policy had the option to exercise a mix of redistribution and acquisition based on historical factors, social demands and political convictions. This paper makes two related arguments by tracing the path of land reforms in the states of India. The first is that there are four types of property regimes that emerged out of India at the sub-national level.

    but not in clayey soil textures, reduces the demand for
    labor in agricultural tasks traditionally performed by
    women. Girls have a lower economic value where female labor

    The female population deficit in India
    has been explained in a number of ways, but the great
    heterogeneity in the deficit across districts within India
    still remains an open question. This paper argues that
    across India, a largely agrarian economy, soil texture
    varies exogenously and determines the workability of the
    soil and the technology used in land preparation. Deep
    tillage, possible only in lighter and looser loamy soils,

    In India, land continues to be of
    enormous economic, social, and symbolic relevance. The main
    purpose of this report is to review new empirical evidence
    on land administration and land policy, as well as the
    possible interaction between the two, to derive policy

    administration is provided by a review of land records,
    survey and settlement, and land registration in 14 states.
