Towards Gender Equality


The proposed research will develop an evidence base of existing land tenancy practices carried out by socially marginalised groups in select villages of Maval and Mulshi tehsils of Pune district. It will examine causes for the disjuncture between de jure and de facto implementation of provisions for SC/ST tenants under The Maharashtra Tenancy and Agricultural Lands Act 1948.
