Abstract: During COVID-19 pandemic and job crisis, migrant workers, landless and marginal farmers may get job opportunities with the adoption of new enterprises. We can provide job opportunities as well as means of income generation to the landless and marginal farmers/laboures during the situation of lockdown period. Most of the workers are landless and marginal farmers and they are searching job opportunities and make solution of the financial crisis so that they may fulfill the basic needs of the family. That is why landless and marginal farmers need such job opportunities which make them self-reliable in term of income and employment oriented. In such a way, these labours may be able to get self-reliance (on short term and long term basis) after adopting new enterprises and may help the family members during this COVID-19 outbreak. Job oriented enterprises like Kadaknath poultry rearing, goat farming, vermicomposting; MANREGA, farm operations, azola production, collection of non-timber forest production etc. may trigger the life of migrant landless workers and the family members in terms of income and employment generation.
