In the present scenario of globalization, liberalization and privatization of agricultural sector, the sustainable development and empowerment of farm women is considered as a key factor for development of any country. According to the 2011 census of India, women constitute half of the total population. Participation of women in economic activities is now emerging as a universal phenomenon. Advancement of information and communication technologies created many opportunities for the development of talents of women in entrepreneurship activities. Krishi Vigyan Kendra, funded by a renowned institute, Indian Council of Agricultural Research provides vocational training programmes to the farm women for their self employment. The study was conducted in Jawhar and Mokhada tehesil of Palghar district of Maharashtra state. The two tribal dominated tehsils were selected purposively. 10 villages selected randomly where KVK Palghar was implemented their entrepreneurial activities conducted for SHG tribal women. 02 SHGs from each village were selected for the study. A SHG having 10 members i.e. each 20 members from 02 SHGs i.e. 200 members from 20 SHGs were benefitted from entrepreneurial activities of KVK. Those SHGs members were trained by KVK on Value addition in finger millet, Poultry management, Jasmine production and Goat Keeping. It was highlighted from the results that, income received from entrepreneurial activities was 48,400/- and agricultural income received as on average Rs.46,557/- per year, i.e. total income reported from family was Rs. 94987/- per year. Study also revealed various aspects of entrepreneurial activities like, impact on employment generation, structure of house, material possession, consumption and impact on saving. Hence policy makers and administrators have to give priority for formation of women SHG and provide financial assistance for establishing their own agro based enterprises.
