The study was conducted in Erode and Tiruchirappali districts of Tamil Nadu, find out the climate change impact on socioeconomic status of the Paddy farmers. Totally 200 Paddy farmers were selected for the study. Study revealed that majority of farmers belonged to medium socio-economic status in both Kalingarayan and Ponnaniyaru basin. The majority (61.00 %) of the respondents in Kalingarayan basin belonged medium level of extension agency contact followed by high (24.00 %) and low (15.00 %). Similarly in Ponnaniyar basin 63.00 per cent of the respondents had medium level extension agency contact followed by high and low with 23.00 per cent and 14.00 per cent respectively. The medium level of extension agency contact might be due to the regular visits made by the officials of development departments and high involvement of progressive farmers.
