Summary

This work is a contribution toward identifying the impact of “local” institutions on development-related outcomes both at the level of villages as well as the levels of households based on primary data collected by ourselves. We randomly selected 36 villages in the states of Maharashtra, Orissa and Uttar Pradesh—12 in each of these states—in India and these were the sites for our observation and data collection.
