The study also aims to assess the role performance against their expected role of lady supervisors. The supervisor is the immediate senior official among the anganwadi workers and subordinate to the Child Development Project Officer (CDPO). The lady supervisors are the main agent for successful implementation of this programme at ground level. The findings of the study indicated that majority (72.41%) of the respondents have medium level of knowledge and only 20.69% of selected respondents were having low level of knowledge while only 6.9% of respondents posse high level of knowledge. Component wise level of knowledge of the lady supervisors shows the extent of knowledge of the selected respondents in different components of ICDS programme which indicates that the knowledge level of lady supervisors was highest in the area of child and pregnancy care. Further, the finding also indicates that the knowledge level of lady supervisors under ICDS programme in order of their importance were non-formal pre-school education, sanitation, administration, health checkup and referral services, immunization, supplementary nutrition management and girls education. This might be due to the fact that prenatal care is extremely important which reduces the risk of pregnancy related complication such as anemia, preterm birth, preeclampsia, complication of diabetes, or poor growth of the baby in uterus.
