The process of women empowerment precisely focusses upon challenging and changing the existing norms and culture of the society which restricts the promotion of effective wellbeing of both the sexes equally. It’s been widely accepted and proved on global scale that the self-help groups had made significant positive impact on the empowerment of participating women. However, the concept is relatively new in the state of Chhattisgarh and even newer in Nagri block of Dhamtari district. Hence this study based on primary data is carried out to analyse the effect of introduction of self-help groups in lifting the economic status of participants in study area. For the study, self-administered questionnaire was used and the primary responses were than analysed using Chi-square test. The results indicate that SHGs have strong positive impact on improving the economic status as well as the social status of the participating women of Nagri block .
