Abstract:

The study was conducted in Ratnagiri district. In all, 112 PRI woman members were selected from four Panchayat Samities, five Grampanchayats from each selected Panchayat Samiti and Ratnagiri Zilha Parishad on the basis of maximum number of woman members. They were interviewed with the help of a specially designed interview schedule. An interview schedule was prepared in Marathi to collect the information in line with the objective of the study. Collected data were processed and tabulated by using simple frequency, and the parameters like percentage, mean and standard deviation, as well as, the correlation and regression coefficient were used. The PRI woman members used more personal and mass media for seeking information. The respondent’s media utilization was mostly for agriculture, education, health, women and child welfare and other developmental activities.
