Land Rights Dispute Leaves Farmers Distressed

Community Correspondent Arti Bai from Madhya Pradesh reports on a curious case of land disputes. In 1971 , Dhanduram, a residents of Kanchanpura village was named the legal holder of a large plot of community land. The plot was informally divided between the different families of the village who cultivated this land. For 40 years Dhanduram tried his best, to get the land formally divided. Now after his death his wife and the rest of the community continue in their struggle. With no rights as such, the farmers have the status of squatters on this land- a land which they sow the seeds of their hopes, dreams and aspirations. You can help them get their dues: Call to Action: Please call SK Aherwar, the State District Magistrate of Javera Block on 09425793988 and ask him to ensure that the residents get their individual land rights. About the Partnership: The Poorest Areas Civil Society (PACS) Programme and Video Volunteers have come together to create the Community Correspondents Network.
