Paper Title
Special Swarnjayantri Gramin Swarojgari Yojana For Development of Sericulture in Kumaun Region of Uttarakhand
  Dr.M.Aslam,  Dr.A.K.Kant

Self employment has become important considering un-employment situation in the rural areas. Government of India has been encouraging regular income and employment oriented farming occupation like sericulture. Sericulture, being an agro-forest based cottage industry, has become the most important rural industry playing a dominant role in rural development in various states and controls migration of rural poor to urban places. In recent years, Central Silk Board in association with respective DoS has launched various programmes for development and improvement of socio-economic conditions of poor sericulturists but these schemes/programmes did not gave the desired impact on developmental activities leading to insufficient livelihood generation due to many reasons. The role of NGOs in sericulture extension becomes very important and crucial for overall development of the silk industry. Keeping in view, SSGSY was implemented through NGO and DoS, Uttarakhand in U.S.Nagar and Nainital respectively in coordination with Central Silk Board. It is observed from the study that sericulture activity is being practiced by economically backward sections of the society viz., 66.25 and 80.66% beneficiaries belong to below poverty line (BPL) in Nainital and U.S.Nagar district respectively. Data revealed that numbers of farmers have increased over the years and silkworm seed intake has also increased during the study. This inferred that farmers have taken interest in this activity and the same may flourishing in the coming years.
