India’s Villages during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Society for Social and Economic Research (SSER) has requested researchers who have been conducting field-based studies of villages and the rural economy to reach out to informants in their study areas over telephone and obtain information on what was happening in the context of COVID-19 pandemic. SSER has compiled village-level information from across the country, presenting them in the form of short reports to provide an initial account of the different dimensions of rural life during COVID-19 pandemic.
