The utilization of IBDLP mission was identified and rank based on the mean scores. Sericulture with least mean scores rank last which shows less utilization of sericulture mission by Garo farm women in selected areas. The problems faced by farm women were identified. Delay in financial support (43%), Unable to attend the training due to daily routine work (23%) and unable to access the information needed (12%) are the main problem faced by farm women. Study further indicated the relationship between variables. The relationship between level of awareness and extent utilization of IBDLP is positively significant at 1 % level. Hence it can be concluded that increasing in awareness level can increase the utilization of different mission of IBDLP by Garo farm women.
