M. Samuel Praveen Kumar
Volume: 8 Issue: 1 2018
India, by 2020 is set to become the world’s youngest nation with its population’s average age at 29 years. The demographic dividend that our country gains cannot deliver positive results unless and until the human resources are harnessed effectively and efficiently. The present study endeavors to explore the reasons for declining female labor force participation in the rural areas of Telangana state. Random sampling technique was used to collect data from 200 respondents. The survey reveals the fact that education by itself do not facilitate women empowerment in rural areas. There is a dire necessity to focus on providing alternative employment sources to agriculture to the qualified women.
