Women are the major contributor of Indian economy. Women participate in all type of farm activities and do more work as compare to male workers but their participation in decision making related to farm and income generating activities is low. Women’s active involvement in decision making is considered essential for rapid economic development of the country. A sample of 200 farm women belonging to 3 different villages of Jammu District were selected by random sampling technique with the objective of studying extent of involvement of women in decision making related to farm and income generating activities and have been analyzed in terms of fully independent, partial involvement and no involvement. For data collection interview schedule, field observation and case studies were framed. Many times cross checking and cross questioning techniques for a particular response were also adopted to get qualitative data.
