Abstract:

The study was conducted on 200 Gram Panchayat members in 38 Gram Panchayats of Imphal-East and Bishnupur districts of Manipur. Proportionate random sampling method was followed for selection of the respondents. Interview schedule was the main tools used in the present study to collect data from the respondents. For this purpose the Socio-economic Status scale-Rural constructed and standardized by Pareek and Trivedi (1964) was used. The scale consisted of 8 items viz. caste, occupation education, family size, family type, Social participation, Land, house, Material possession. The Socio-economic Status of the Gram Panchayat members was obtained by summation of scores of all the eight items. In addition, the age of the Gram Panchayat members were also found out. The finding reveals that about 90.5 percent of the Gram Panchayat members belonged to middle class and only 8.5 percent belonged to upper class socio-economic status.
