Abstract:
Dinhata is one of the five sub divisions of Coochbehar district that belongs to the state of West Bengal in India. The study area has a distinct cultural camouflage with population of various religions. With high concentration of Rajbanshi population belonging to schedule caste (SC) category and Minority(OBC-A) population, few strong cultural and socio-economic factors are found here that influence the adolescent girls of this area. Socio-economic and cultural taboos push them in the most strenuous path of life from which very few of them return with success but most of all can't. Because of less moral support from the family and society, they grow up with less confidence and self reliance. Therefore, question arises that within those hurdles and obstacles, whether the economic support able to bring any difference in their life or not. This study focuses on the relationship between economic empowerment and self reliance of the adolescence girls in Dinhata subdivision of Coochbehar district. The findings reveal that girls are capable of doing better if they are provided with better parental and social support. Economic empowerment is one of the important ways to encourage them to step ahead and to make a confident individual.
