Household Level Impact Of Self-Employment Programs: A Case Of Tribal Orissa
This paper attempts to probe into the extent to which self-employed households are advantaged, compared to non-beneficiary households in relation to resource access in tribal Orissa, a state in eastern India. It is observed in the course of the study that the representation of non-beneficiary households to the basket of poverty is more, compared to the self-employed households. Further, limited access to remunerative occupation, resources, and basic services have highly affected the socioeconomic status of non-beneficiary households, as compared to self-employed households. Finally, from the regression analysis it is evident that self-employment is an important factor for household welfare; and that non-beneficiary households are disadvantageous. Therefore, it is suggested that the government should promote more developmental schemes with innovative plans in the tribal areas so as to ameliorate the standard of people by providing greater access to the household amenities and skill-based occupation, avoiding casualization of labor, and controlling the tribal urban migration in a highly sophisticated manner.
