The main aim of the present research was to study and compare social freedom and adjustment among college girls belonging general and reserved category in rural areas. In this study my target sample was college girls. The reason for selecting college girls in rural area was to know their psychological attributes and analyzed it to discover important aspect of their personality and find out if the vocational training as extra- curricular activities, improve their social freedom and adjustment or not; that could be useful and meaningful for their future. To fulfill the motto of research, the Women social freedom scale –By L. I. Bhusan and Adjustment Inventory for college students- By A. K. P. Sinha and R. P. Singh was used. The random sampling technique was used in the selection of the sample for the present research. The sample further divided in to two groups. One is N1=60 girls from general category and N2=60 girls from reserved category (ST/SC/OBC). Thus, the total N = 120. Sample was taken from various college of Rural areas from Kheda district. The entire subject was in the age group of 16 to 25 years married or unmarried girls. They are from joint family or nuclear family. The pre-test and post-test method was applied. After pre test, I gave them vocational training (Beauty parlor) for three months as their income generation activities in future and then post test was given to all girls. The difference of the score of the pre-test and post-test was measured. The hypothesis was that vocational training will not increase their social freedom and adjustment. The result shows that there is the significant difference between their social freedom and adjustment after training. Their social freedom and adjustment level was increase after three months vocational training. The hypothesis was significant at .01 levels.
