Agrarian Structure, Movements & Peasant Organisations in India: Andhra Pradesh
V.V. Giri National Labour Institute, 2004 - Agricultural laborers - 330 pages
The agrarian question still remain central to India's development discourse. It was paramount in the pre-independence period as the structure and process of agrarian economy posed a serious bottleneck in the effort to bring about a sense of egalitarianism in the realm of socio-economic and political arenas. The earlier structure was fostered by the ruling classes for extracting exorbitant rent/revenue from the tillers of land by various anti-peasant measures. These measures subsequently let to movements by the peasantry in various parts of the country. The resulting tensions had far reaching implications which the Planning Commission rightly comprehended in its report in 1969. The Commission emphasised the need for delving into the causes of agrarian tensions which stirred many parts of the country.
