|Abstract:||The Sericulture industry is an important and integral part of the rural Assam. It is a form of household industry contributing a substantial portion of the family income. The most common form of sericulture industry is the rearing of Endi, spinning of Endi yarn, and weaving of Endi clothes. Kokrajar district of Assam having the highest concentration of tribal population and highest number of families engaged in Sericulture industry was selected for the study. This report has thrown new lights in regard to the resource potentialities of this industry and its possibility as income generating scheme for those tribal families who were yet to come above the poverty line. The report would be helpful for those officers of the development departments specially the Department of Sericulture, who are engaged for the development and upliftment of the tribal people of Assam.|
