Land and Property Rights

According to the Socio Economic and Caste Census, 2011- there are 24.49 crore households in India, of which 17.97 crore live in villages. Of the ones who live in the villages, 10.74 crore are considered as deprived- 5.37 crore (29.97%) households in rural areas are "landless deriving a major part of their income from manual labour". Jan Sahas launched this program in the year 2006 to facilitate land entailment of the most vulnerable groups, as well as to ensure that the communities we work with gain access to the land and property rights that they are entitled to.

We are very closely working with the government authorities to replicating the model in other districts, as of now we have extended out our reach in 3,417 villages of 16 districts, benefitting 1,84,268 landless and vulnerable families.
