Abstract

The study indicated that the services offered by many (66.7%) of the IDCs led to significant increase in employment generation by large number of beneficiary small- scale businesses at 1% level but at 5% level the services offered by many (66.7%) IDCs did not lead to significant increase in employment generation by large number of small-scale businesses beneficiaries.
