Abstract

Occupational caste is deprived in terms of education, and landholding. Due to this laboring and agriculture specially small animals like goats and poultry remain the prominent source of income for them. Average income from salaried job is the highest followed by remittance and that from laboring is the lowest. This led to the high concentration of Occupational caste under third and fourth income quartile poorer. A share of income from agriculture in total income is the highest and the share from laboring is the lowest. Relative concentration coefficient RCC-ci or gi shows salaried job has both the highest income disequalizing effect ci = 1.56 or gi = 1.49 as well as the highest factor inequality weight wici followed by agriculture. In case of Melauli, however, salaried job followed by remittance has the highest income disequalizing effect. Negative values of Relative Concentration Coefficient and factor inequality weight for laboring indicate that income from it has the income equalizing effect. Thus, agricultural promotion in rural areas based on labor demand increasing policies with proper market arrangement for the agricultural produce will be helpful to reduce the income inequality. In addition, regulation regarding working hour and minimal wage rate should be strictly enforced for the welfare of those involved in laboring, which is also the poorest.
