The impression that the village was economically self-sufficient was created by :

 a) Lack of monetisation of the economy

 b) Existence of Jajmani system

 c) Poor communication which limited the flow of goods. But the existence of  weekly markets and the dependence on other villages for certain artisan and servicing castes show that the village was far from self-sufficient economically.
