If the entire area of the plot (i.e. area under survey number or sub-survey number) is owned by the household, the total geographical area of the plot will be recorded in q. (7) and 100 will be recorded in ql. (6). However, if the plot is jointly owned by members of two or more households, the percentage share of area owned by the sample household will be recorded in q. (6) and the actual area owned in ql. (7). All entries in ql. (7) are to be made in acres rounded off to two places of decimal and those in ql. (6) in terms of percentage share expressed in whole numbers. It may be noted that when geographical area of the plot is not available, i.e. when 'N.A.' is entered in ql. (5), a dash (-) will be entered in ql. (6).
when a part of the plot is covered under homestead land, the entries in q. (6) q (7) will relate to the area outside the homestead, the percentage share and actual area of only the part of the plot not covered under homestead will be recorded in cols. (6) and (7) respectively.
