This movement later on developed into a village gift or Gramdan movement.

Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page. The fundamental weakness of Bhoodan movement movemment that its appeal was directed not to the poor and landless, but to the rich and landlords.

Vinobaji set himself the task of collecting in land gifts of 50 million acres, so that one acre could be given to each landless peasant with an average of five members.
