What is the difference between collectivisation and consolidation of land holding?
- In Russia Joseph Stalin started this policy of collectivization and the goal of this policy was to consolidate individual land and labour into collective farms.
- Whereas Consolidation of holdings means to bring together the scattered lands of different farmers and form a single holding or the redistribution of all or any of the lands in an estate or sub-division of an estate so as to reduce the number of plots.
- These are the steps for agriculture reform taken by the government of India after the independence.‘Land reform’ was the main focus of our First Five Year Plan. The right of inheritance had already lead to fragmentation of land holdings necessitating consolidation of holdings.
