Haliya (Nepali: हलिया) is an agricultural bonded laborer who works on another person's land. The literal meaning of Haliya is "one who ploughs". Haliyas can be found throughout Nepal. But the Haliya system in the far western hilly part of Nepal is considered a bonded labor system.
As of September 2008 the system has been abolished by the Nepalese government.
