Rural Administration - Lesson Summary

India is made up of many states. States consist of many districts which are divided into tehsils or talukas. A Tehsil is a collection of small towns and villages.

Since agriculture is the main occupation in Indian villages, so it is important for the government to maintain proper land records.

The Tehsildar is a land revenue officer at the district level. Tehsildars from various districts report to the District Magistrate.
