Abstract:

Technological empowerment of women enables them in creating sustainable and diversified livelihood opportunity. Such diversification of livelihood is extremely necessary to escape many adverse situations. District based institution, Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) has been imparting vocational trainings as an approach for technology transfer. The present study was conducted to assess whether there was adequate representation of women in such training programmes conducted by KVKs of Assam. A questionnaire was used for collecting the data from the selected KVKs functioning under Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat. Participation of women in vocational trainings with minimum three days duration for the period of 12th Five Year Plan was analysed. Among the total participants, 53.55 per cent were male and 46.45 per cent were female. It was found that in some subject areas, there were only women participants i.e. hundred per cent participants were women where as in some other areas there was nil participation. Similarly the KVK wise analysis of data reflected a large variation among the KVKs.
