Abstract:

The present study was conducted during 2013-14 both in Northern and Southern districts of Karnataka i.e. Dharwad & Tumkur to observe the expenditure pattern of Sthree Shakthi Group members viz., on food, clothing and House Keeping. Three hundred Self Help Group members (120 & 180 SHG members from Dharwad and Tumkur districts respectively)were selected and interviewed using pretested interview schedule. It was noticed that on an average, Dharwad SSG members’ families spent Rs. 6,125/- to that of Rs. 5,500/- of Tumkur on cereals and millets which was found to be the major constituent of food expenditure followed by milk and milk products (Rs. 6,643/- and Rs. 5,714/- for Dharwad and Tumkur respectively). The amount spent on pulses was found to be higher among Dharwad (Rs. 4,028/-) respondent’s families to that of Tumkur (Rs. 2,833/-) district. In both the selected districts the average annual amount spent on children clothing was slightly higher i.e. Rs.3,383/- by Dharwad and Rs. 3,142/- by Tumkur respondents. The average annual expenditure for celebrating festivals and functions by Dharwad (Rs.17, 092/-) SSG members’ families was double than the Tumkur (Rs. 8,226/-) SSG members’ families.
