II. THE LAND TENURE SITUATION IN PAKISTAN
Lend tenure means all the relations established by law and
custom among men to determine their various rights in the
use of land. Land tenure, therefore, consists of a collection
of rights (to own, lease, mortgage, inherit, donate, rent,
exploit, etc.) which together, constitute the property, i.e.
the right to control the economic asset, in this case, land.
The type of tenure in land determines to a large extent the
social status and the economic well-being of the members of
the rural society.
