The report was produced by National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO), Government of India on Common Property Resources (CPR) in rural areas of the country, as part of its 54th Round survey conducted during January-June, 1998.

It presents a brief introduction to the perspectives and discussed on the definitions and concepts of CPR.  The enquiry aimed at providing certain basic statistics on the size of CPRs, type of benefits derived and the magnitude and proportion of households making use of CPRs.

It discussed the important role played by CPR in the life and economy of the rural population, the decline trends and their impacts on economy of the rural population and local climate.

It also highlights the role of village level institutions (Panchayat) and Government in control and management of CPRs. This survey is a first attempt providing comprehensive state- and national-level estimates of size, utilisation and contribution of CPRs and also giving separate estimates for different agro-climatic zones of the country.

The survey covered the areas and different types of CPRs available in the sample villages like availability and use of different types of land and forests, value and quantity of fuel-wood, fodder and other items collected by the surveyed households and availability and use of irrigation water from CPRs.
