Abstract:
Socio-Economic Conditions of the Women in J.P Nagar after Bhopal Gas tragedy 1984 is discussed in this paper. Target population was gas affected women. The research work proceeded with the help of detailed survey method in the field. Respondents said gas impacted the life of women in this city in instances such as mothers lost their kids, the women who exposed to gas on that day has not been able to become a mother ever since the tragedy .Male members in their family never supported them to come out and stand for a battle against Union Carbide India & against those errant Government Officials who stood in their way of fair relief and rehabilitation program. Victims have faced very demotivating approaches from Government agencies when they demanded compensations and came up with morchas and protests. The company paid $470m to settle litigation stemming from the disaster but that amount didn't reach to the people properly. Due to some political and other underplays, the affected people in Bhopal didn't get their share of compensation. The authorities instead gave away very little money to shout down their protest temporarily. Half of the people are still not aware about the exact amount of compensation and how should they fight for their rights.
