ABSTRACT:
The economic and social development of society depends upon human development. Women constitute approximately half of the Indian population. Their role is indispensable in the process of socio-economic development of a nation. Women's empowerment allows women to take an independent decision, redefine gender roles, control over money, and pursue their dreams. Empowering women in social, family, political, psychological and educational aspects has become necessary to become a self-sustainable society. SHGs act as a catalyst of change in empowering women. Empowering women changes the underlying inequalities in power and resources and increases self-esteem, self-confidence, and independent decision making. The objective of this paper is to empirically understand the effect of the SHG-Bank linkage program on women's empowerment. Information is collected using a questionnaire form Yamuna Nagar, Haryana. The data obtained was analyzed using SPSS 16. Results suggested that there is a significant impact of age, education, marital status and number of family members on social, family, political, psychological and educational indicators leading to women's empowerment. Research failed to establish the impact of this type of family on women empowerment after joining SHG's linked to BLP. It is suggested to focus on age, education, marital status and number of family members as they play an important role in empowering women.
