The book is a report on the village economy of the state of Tripura in India, based on a survey of three villages in the state conducted by the Foundation for Agrarian Studies in May–June 2016. The villages—Mainama in Manu block, Chailengta tehsil, Dhalai district; Khakchang in Dasda block, Anand Bazaar tehsil, North district; and Muhuripur in Muhuripur tehsil, Julaibari block, South district—were surveyed under the ongoing Project on Agrarian Relations in India (PARI). The survey was conducted using a stratified simple random sampling method. A team from the Foundation for Agrarian Studies revisited the three villages in April 2017 to conduct case studies. These villages were also surveyed in 2005 for the Tripura Human Development Report 2007.
