Kamal Kanti Das
Women’s Economic empowerment is one of the big problems in Indian economic system because overall development cannot be achieved unless and until women’s have their equal right and place in every sphere in the society. Women population comprises major segment in Indian population there development issue is the major for govt. and country as a whole. Govt has to look after each and everything possible ways and means to change their present vulnerability. With the help of different poverty eradication programme/rural development programme such as IRDP, NREP, JRY, NSAP etc but these all are not so fruitful. Women’s Economic empowerment is one of the most important parameters of the overall empowerment which includes social, psychological and political aspects of empowerment. Since the Indian government has taken many initiatives to remove the poverty and vulnerability for women by implementing many programme and schemes but all are in vein. One such programme i.e. SHG-Bank linkage programme is still functioning till today. So through this scheme the economic empowerment of rural people is taking place or not it is to be determining because many research was done on this scheme.
