Abstract

The present empirical investigation district Mandi has been selected purposely from the rural areas of Himachal Pradesh. A sample of 300 households scattered over 12 villages in all selected development blocks of district Mandi has been selected randomly. The required information has been collected with the help of pre-tested scheduled from the sample households during the period 2013 14. The percentage share of non-agricultural income to the total income shows an increasing tendency with an increase in the size of holdings. It occurred mainly due to the well developed and fertile agricultural land which contribute to the total household’s income of the large farmer, whereas, the households falling on the smaller size of holdings due to the uneconomic size of holdings, meager household income, higher dependency ratio and higher burden of the debt repayment, generally supplement their meager household income mainly by way of wage work and other source of income.
