Ethnicity, Female Income, Drug Abuse, and Labour Force Participation in Urban Delhi
the aim of this paper is not to explain and predict the outcome of women’s behaviour but to explore and describe the impact of drug abuse on their lives and income . The paper focuses on low income urban Scheduled Caste women in Delhi, a city in the north part of India. Scheduled Caste households are non-pooling and the household responsibilities of scheduled caste women are defined to include providing, as well as preparing many of the consumption goods of a household. The aim is to document women’s experiences in intra household relations in a particular socio – economic and ethnic context to contribute to the discussion on the impact of drug abuse on women’s economic power and fallback position within the household. This paper will argue the facts based on empirical data from study carried out in Delhi, India, amongst urban scheduled caste low income women. The paper will try to find out the answer that drug abuse may have positive or negative impact on their lives and income.
