Abstract

Darjeeling Hills owes its scenic beauty to the tea plantations, which provides livelihood to the majority of population living in the Darjeeling Hills. The area under the tea plantations forms the rural belt and possesses features which are at par with the underdeveloped nations in terms of poverty, educational backwardness and low income. Though the tea industry contribution towards the economy is immense, the area continues to be neglected as evident from the prevalence of poverty, low wage, and educational backwardness.
