Land Utilisation of Manipur



Land Utilisation statistics for the entire state of Manipur are not available because hill areas are not cadastrally surveyed. The plains of Manipur occupies about 2238 sq. kms. which accounts for about 10 percent of the total geographical area. A firm information regarding the land utilization of the entire State cannot be built up since land records are available only for the cadastrally surveyed area of the Manipur Valley and a very small pocket of the hills while no complete and regular land utilization survey have been undertaken by the authorities, such as Agriculture/ Horticulture/ Settlement and Land Records/ Revenue Departments. As per the land utilization statistics of 2000-2001, out of the total geographical area, the reporting area is about 190446 hectares. An area of 26900 hectares of land are not available for cultivation. Fallow land covers 200 hectares and other uncultivated land excluding the fallow land covers 8055 hectares which account for about 4.23 percent of the total reporting area.
