The definition of operational holding is given in Chapter One. If the household possesses any operational holding during agricultural year 2002-03 code 1 will be recorded, otherwise code 2 will be recorded against item 12. During visit-1, the information will be available for the period from 1 July 2002 to the date of survey. This period will not represent the whole agricultural year 2002- 03. The code for item 12: Whether the household possesses any operational holding during the agricultural year 2002-03 will be decided on the basis of this period.
Most of the households are likely to report single holding. Only on rare occasions, a household is expected to report more than one holding. Total number of operational holdings possessed by the household is to be reported against item 13. Out of these holdings, how many are jointly held with members of other households will be recorded against item 14. In case, one or more operational holdings are jointly held, total number of partner households considering all the operational holdings held jointly is to be reported against item 15.
