Abstract
Joint Forest Management (JFM) is operating with main objective of forest management and empowerment of local livelihoods. The present study was carried out in Nainital district of Uttarakhand. An investigation run for two years and beneficiaries were categorized into two income groups (low and high). The annual family income was estimated for both the periods. The share of each source of income in annual family income was computed and compared. The JFM comprised second largest source of income with 25.48 percent share in annual family income after implementation of JFM programme and hence, it needs to be strengthened.
