Title

A Study of Real life Stories of Female domestic workers in Chandigarh

Authors

Abstract

Vimla Devi, who resides in a small house at Maloya, a suburb, on the outskirts of Chandigarh begins her day early morning preparing meals for her family and looking after her own house. Minutes later, she picks up a local bus to reach Sector-34, and then walks half a kilometer to reach her workplace by 8.30 am. Thereafter, she gets engaged in all domestic tasks, including washing utensils, floor cleaning, washing clothes, cooking, etc in 4 to 5 households daily. This has been her routine without taking any sick leave. She gets merely two or three days off every month. Looking at the working conditions, not only is it informal, but also involves hard manual labor, vulnerable and unhygienic environment. All this hard work fetches her merely Rs.4000 a month, without any social security benefits, provident fund and negligible job security. Women domestic workers are the breadwinners for their families in India. In the absence of an effective national policy, domestic workers are openly exploited. Several studies reveal that they are subjected to discrimination on grounds of religion, caste, and ethnicity. This study employs a descriptive approach that was conducted among 50 female domestic workers in Chandigarh. Main purpose of the study is to know the socio-economic conditions of women domestic workers and the reason which led them to adopt this sector. This paper reveals that domestic servants mainly belong to scheduled caste and it is because of illiteracy, poverty, alcoholic partners and parents, that they are bound to do domestic work. 62% of the respondents belong to above 35 years age group, 38% of the respondents belong to 16-35 years age group. 66% of the respondents are married and most of them preferred domestic work.
