Women community equals men in population. But it is a subject of concern to note that, women are treated as second citizens, subordinate to men (Sumangala Naik, 2005). According to World Labour Report (1992), in advanced countries, in organized sector, women’s pay has been around 50% of the men’s pay. Similar views were highlighted in the United Nation’s Report (1995) which stated that the returns on her labour are lower than that of men, partly because of over discrimination, partly because she has acquired fewer marketable skills and partly because of imperfections in the market forces. As a result, women are frequently confined to less paid and casual segments of the labour market. In India, women constitute nearly 48% of the population but their participation in economic activity is only 25.7% (Census, 2001). The effect of this economic inequality is mirrored in the social scenario, where a small percentage of population is becoming more and more prosperous and nearly two-thirds of the population still remains poor and untouched of technological progress (Poonam Syal and Dhameeja, 2003). To empower women and attain economic independence, development of self employment becomes essential. Since the Sixth Plan, (1980-85) to empower women, the Government of India has been striving hard to encourage women to take up self employment under various poverty alleviation programmes. The two important poverty alleviation programmes existing in urban areas are Prime Minister’s Rozgar Yojana (PMRY) and Swarna Jayanthi Shahari Rozgar Yojana (SJSRY).In the case of rural areas it is Swarnajayanthi Gram Swarozgar Yojana (SGSY). The impact of the various developmental policies, programmes and institutional mechanism is to be gauged from the perceptible improvement in the socio-economic status of women. The present study is an attempt to evaluate the performance of the women beneficiaries of the Prime Minister’s Rozgar Yojana in Coimbatore district of Tamilnadu, which is the sixth most populous State in India. The major objective of the study was to bring about a comparative analysis on the performance of women beneficiaries of Prime Minister’s Rozgar Yojana and nonbeneficiaries in Coimbatore city. An analysis on the important socio-economic aspects of the beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries of the Prime Minister’s Rozgar Yojana will be useful to enact suitable policy decisions to encourage and empower women. As no such study has been carried out in Coimbatore city, this research will be of great value to the officials, planners and policy makers in identifying the crucial areas for development of women.
