Land Sale Transactions in an Indian Village: Theories and Evidence
This study uses original survey data from an Indian village to locate and analyse the factors influencing different groups of households for selling farm land and its impact on land distribution. It is found that farm households sell land for a variety of reasons including due to distress conditions in case of poor farmers. The characteristics of buyers and the sources of funds utilised by them revealed that households belonging to resident dwellers and exdwellers of the study area, with diversified sources of income could buy land. Even buyers with diversified occupations have strong preference for land holding. However, borrowing has played a negligible role for financing of land purchase; thus linkage of land market with that of credit market is imperceptible in the study area.
