The study was conducted in the district of West Garo Hills, Meghalaya. A total of hundred samples were collected for the present study and was studied between March 2018 and May 2019. The results revealed that large percentage (81%) of the respondents have use mobile phones. According to their awareness level large percentage of the respondents were aware and use mobile to call and to send SMS to others. Apart from their awareness on use and send SMS only few (2%) percentage of the respondents were connected to internet services. Their attitude towards ICT were favourable so they need to encourage little more by the ICT expertise providing them a short duration training or awareness programme on the use and importance of ICTs. This will help them to learn a valuable of ICTs in a different way of agriculture and allied activities. It was found that the correlation between age and the attitude towards ICT of respondents is negligible because the attitude towards ICTs does not depend on age. So, their effect towards ICT is negligible. So far to their perceived effects towards ICTs and socio-economic variables were moderately correlated because the respondents whose education, mass media exposure, ownership of mobile phones is higher than their attitude towards ICT is more positive.
