Purpose: Dairy activities taken up by SHG women play a crucial role in socio - economic development of poor women leading to an increased standard of living. As scheduled caste (SC) women do not have much sources of income due to belonging to a deprived segment of the society, milching business has proved to be income generating for them, which they can carry out easily as it may be their traditional business and they already own cattle, thus requiring less capital and skill to carry out this business. Therefore this paper aims at identifying the factors which stimulate Scheduled Caste (SC) women to opt for milching business and how increase in income enhances these factors. Design/Methodology/Approach: Data was collected from primary and secondary sources. Primary data was collected from women SHGs using questionnaire and interview method. Secondary data was collected from various published and unpublished sources like NABARD, NGO reports, journals. Analysis was done using percentage, frequency, weighted average, mean score, standard deviation and ANOVA. Findings: The present study revealed a positive association between income and factors facilitating milch activities of poor SC SHG women. Originality/Value: Present study concentrates on analyzing the impact of income on factors facilitating milching business of SC women of two districts of Tamil Nadu, which has not been attempted so far. Therefore this is an original work of the author.
