Abstract: Self-employment is one of the significant steps to have sustained income. The government of India implemented a programme i.e. Integrated Rural Development Programme (IRDP) gained momentum but did not yield a desirable result. After examining the deficiencies of the earlier programmes the government launched an integrated self-employment programme Swarnajayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana (SGSY). This programme aims at establishing a large number of microenterprises through SHGs in the rural areas to build upon the potential of rural poor. The present study was conducted in Etawah district of Uttar Pradesh to explore the knowledge and adoption level of SHG beneficiaries of the SGSY. The study was conducted in the block i.e. Saifai comes under the Etawah district. A random sample was collected from 120 beneficiaries of the block. The main objective of this paper is to identify the impacts of SGSY programme on the income level of SHGs beneficiaries.
