Abstract: TRYSEM is a potent tool for making the poor Scheduled Caste women become more productive by acquiring skills which generate employment. Mo doubt, this programme roped in Scheduled Caste women in a much larger proportion (55%) than the prescribed minimum of 50 per cent. Two-thirds of the trained women were based in their homes while the remaining one-third were non-traceable. The status of such women and the utilisation of their trained knowledge for self employment generation is a matter of conjecture. Barring a small segment who dropped out, all the other trainees (87%) successfully completed the training in several trades offered. Further, nearly half of the Scheduled Caste women who underwent the training were satisfied about their training but a substantial share of their unsatisfied counterparts causes concern. newlineSimilarly, about two-thirds of the trained women were found employed, largely in wage employment (50%) but those engaged in self employment (14%) were marginal. However, reduction in unemployment from 42 to 36 per cent after attending TRYSEM training reveals its poor impact on reducing unemployment among the target groups. Moreover, its impact on augmenting the income of trainees, employed with help of TRYSEM training is also mild (RS. 231/- p.m.) and below the subsistence level. Availability of financial support from the Government (Banks and Blocks) to only 10 per cent of the TRYSEM trainees, and provision of tool kits to hardly two per cent trainees are an ample proof of poor post-training care and support. Nearly, two out of every five trainees, therefore remained unemployed even after their TRYSEM training. newline newlineImplementation of TRYSEM programme bristled with problems-mainly in the form of delay in the payment of stipend, long distance to training centres from, home, unauthorised deduction from their stipend by the training institution, unsold products made during the training period and non-issuance of certificate several months after completion of the training programme.
