Findings reveal that the rural women in both the region are in a state of great deprivation due to poor socio economic status and lack of awareness about their health and nutrition. Anthropometric measurements showed that the heights deficits were more as compared to weight. BMI indicated that the half of the population on an average is nutritionally low in terms of their assessment and prevalence of underweight type of malnutrition is very much evident.
