Abstract

Land occupies the highest position in any given society whether agrarian or industrial society and in any economy which is predominantly agricultural, the government’s land policy is closely connected with its revenue policy. As the Zeme and the other tribal’s group who inhabits Dima Hasao district of Assam practices shifting cultivation which is considered as the worst form of doing agriculture and primitive in nature as it requires large area of forest land to be slash and burnt for cultivation which directly or indirectly destroy the ecosystem. It is very important to have a clear concept and deeper understanding of the traditional Land holding system among the Zeme of Dima Hasao, Assam.
