Abstract
"'Neerkattis' are traditional water managers in areas irrigated by tanks in many parts of India. They are rural managers in maintaining and managing the tank systems and paid for their services in cash and kind. The traditional institutions of these tanks are in a change and the managers are at cross roads. The study captures the lives of these managers in many tanks."
