Self Help Groups (SHG) UPSC NOTE


  • Self-Help Groups (SHGs) are informal associations of people who choose to come together to find ways to improve their living conditions.

  • It can be defined as self governed, peer controlled information group of people with similar socio-economic background and having a desire to collectively perform common purpose.

  • Villages face numerous problems related to poverty, illiteracy, lack of skills, lack of formal credit etc. 

  • These problems cannot be tackled at an individual level and need collective efforts.


  • Thus SHG can become a vehicle of change for the poor and marginalized. 

  • SHG rely on the notion of “Self Help” to encourage self-employment and poverty alleviation.

  • Cities under the Swachh Bharat Mission have involved women-led self-help groups (SHGs) and transgender groups for waste management services in urban areas.

  • Community-based organizations representing vulnerable groups offer a cost-effective way to improve sanitation coverage and generate livelihood opportunities for SHG members.
