A Study on the Impact of Vocational Training Programme Conducted by KVK for Rural Women in Khandwa block of Khandwa district of M.P. Women form the back bone of agriculture, comprising the majority of agricultural labours in Madhya Pradesh. It is known that women’s participation in income generating activities is believed to increase their socio economic status and power in the society. The economic contribution of women is related to their status and role in the family and in the society. If women are economically parasite, they can never claim an equal status with men. The problem of poverty cannot be tackled without providing opportunities of productive employment to farm women. Economic independence of women will create far reaching social changes and prove a necessary weapon for them to face injustice and discrimination. If women are to be economically empowered they should be provided with alternative forms of informal credit, training, employment, management skills and social security. 120 rural women were trained by the KVK Khandwa in the year of 2014-15. All these 120 women participants were taken for this study. The result repaved that size of family, economic motivation, training experience, type of training and socio-economic status are significantly associated with vocational training on skill and income generation.
