Course Description

The study discusses the distinct form of sharecropping arrangement known as the bhagiya mazdoori or majuri bhagiya_ (labour partner) system involving migrant tribal workers. Drawing from Aajeevika Bureau and KAS’s work in the region in the last 15 years, the study aims to understand and document the institution of bhagiya mazdoori as practiced in a changing agrarian system. It explores the status of tribal sharecroppers hailing from Khedbrahma (Sabarkantha district, Gujarat) and Kotda tehsil (Udaipur district, Rajasthan).

The study seeks ways to evolve a progressive and symbiotic policy for advancing workers’ interests while recognizing the constraints confronting farmers in the region.The Principal Investigator for this study is Prof. Tara Nair, Faculty, Gujarat Institute of Development Research - an eminent scholar in the field of development studies.
