Abstract: "An attempt is made, in this paper to highlight the lack of legal attention in addressing governance of Commons in India. Management of gairan (=grazing land), in Pune District, is identified for case study, to amplify the point. The study is a combination of empirical and doctrinal research. Comparison with the experiences in different legal systems and evolution of international legal norms on the theme are attempted to draw lessons from and to make a case for reforms in the Law in India. Comanagement is the proposed model for governance of grazing lands and a draft legislative bill is attempted as a culmination and logical conclusion of the study."
