dc.description.abstract This study deals with the effects of remittance on the social structure of a village in Bangladesh. The study has been designed in nine chapters, along with a chapter making detailed descriptions on different theoretical propositions regarding migration. It has also investigated the causes, process and the time of migration, and has revealed that the kinship-tie helped to overcome the intervening obstacles between the place of origin and that of destination to complete the process of migration. The remittance in fact pulled the migrant families from the arena of extreme poverty to affluence within a shortest possible time but failed to generate significant productive activities for the overall improvement of the village economy. The inflow of remittance has directly influenced the existing organization of production and brought about changes in one's position in it. It has also brought changes in the life style of the migrant families. Vertical mobility is also taking place in the village and the persons with remittance have already established their effective control over the power structure of the village. The condition of the worriment having migrant husbands but staying in the village is really precarious. Many of them have married knowing that they may have to remain away from their. husbands for the major part of their conjugal life. They are to perform the functions of rearing the children and looking after the household affairs, thereby changing their role in the household from working women to supervisors. en_US
