An ex-post facto research design was adopted to find out the results. Socio-economic background of the respondents of Madurai City revealed that nearly 77.5 per of the respondents were in the age group of 30-50 and 70 per cent of the respondents were female. Majority (52.5 per cent) of the respondents fell in the income group of Rs. 30,000 -70,000/annum and only 12.5 per cent of the respondents earned more than Rs.70000 per annum.
