Abstract

This study investigates patterns of interaction between villages and rural towns, with an emphasis on village households and the nature of their visits to larger settlements. This report addresses the following questions. First, what are the types of towns visited by village households in Bolangir District? Second, what are the different purposes of such visits and their relative importance? Third, how frequently are towns visited, generally and for specific purposes? Fourth, to what extent does gender and caste affect people’s mobility? Finally, what are the main factors (other than gender and caste) constraining households’ ability to access towns?
