Naranpur Express

Naranpur express is a simulation game developed on the basis of the fieldwork conducted by the faculty of IRMA in Naranpur village of Sabarkantha district (Gujarat). It simulates economic relationships underlying four major subsystems of the village economy, namely,
(i) crop production system,
(ii) livestock production system,
(iii) household system, and
(iv) market system.

The game focuses attention on decision making process of farmers, especially the small and marginal farmers. It also seeks to simulate, under some simplifying assumptions, how decisions taken by large farmers influence the fortunes of small farmers and landless labourers. The game can also simulate the effects of interventions such as those implied by IRDP, NREP, etc. on the rural poor and help to develop better understanding of conditions under which such interventions would produce best results.
