SHG federations are an apex organisation designed to promote political, entrepreneurial, social and economic aspects of SHG members. In Odisha, SHG federations are promoted and supported by government organisation under strict compliance. There exist some deviation in norms and regulation as per geographical and socio-economic status, but as regard to operational and organizational structure concern all federation follows rules developed by Mission Shakti. The federations in Odisha follows three tier structure including in bottom cluster level federations (primary level), Panchayat level (secondary) and Block level federations (Tertiary level) As per their position study found no existence and relevance of primary level federations i.e. village level federations in any districts of Odisha (mission Shakti report).
