This study explores the impact of Dalit Bandhu Scheme (DBS) on income growth of beneficiaries. The research analyses data from beneficiaries of the DBS in Yadadri district, revealing a 2.5-fold increase in their income growth fostering a savings culture and creation of assets. Notably, the scheme has shortened the average time taken for doubling of income to 1-2 years instead of 5-6 years and 8-9 years at state and national levels respectively. Beyond economic dimensions, DBS has also positively influenced the social indicators - empowering women and promoting community cohesion among the beneficiaries. These findings underscore the multifaceted positive effects of DBS, highlighting its potential to create inclusive development.
