The household which takes the major decisions on the various agricultural operations carried out in an operational holding is considered to possess the operational holding. Such operators or holders of the operational holding may not stay at the site of the holding but may manage the affairs of the holding through others. According to this procedure of recording the information on operational holdings, the particulars of a holding will be collected through household of the operator in block 14. The area of this holding operated through relatives/ representative/hired managers looking after the day to day work of the holding will be ascertained for the household of the operator. For each operational holding possessed, individually or jointly, by this household, the area of such holdings located in rural areas will be recorded in col. (16) and that of such holdings located in urban area will be recorded in col. (17). The entries will be recorded in acres rounded off to two places of decimal.
