Abstract (Original Language): 
SGSY was introduced by the Central Government with co-operation of State Governments with the objective to elevate the rural poor from BPL to APL, and to generate the employment opportunities in the interior of rural areas. Self Help Groups (SHGs) are formed through a process of social mobilization, with their training and capacity building, infrastructure build up, technology, credit and marketing enabling them to take decisions on all issues concerning poverty eradication. The SGSY Scheme under the cluster approach caters most to the labourers whether the Swarozgaris belong to an SHG or is an individual. Animal Husbandry and Agriculture related occupations are dominant SGSY activities.
