Abstract

Abstract The traditional family structure of Indian society was undergoing a rapid transformation. The older structure of the joint family is being replaced by simpler nuclear structures. From the cultural point of view, the area which comprises South Asia reflects much diversity. There are Kinship systems which blind people together and finds Patrilineal and Matrilineal modes of decent in some areas. But in a country like India, the family as a unit cannot be studied in isolation from other social Institutions and its relation with wider kinship network which further related to other important units like property and Inheritance. India exhibits a strong family bound sharing close ties to the wider network of kinship and affinity but with the changing scenario, this strong bound weakened and take shape in the form of nuclear family than to a single parent or childless families are visible. In the past few years, the effect of globalization has further intensified the change in social and family structures in the world and India is also one of them. And there are many factors for the disintegration of the joint family like economic, educational, legal, urbanization which contributes in separating the children from the elders. From this background, the present study highlights the various factors which contribute to the disintegration of Indian family structure.
