Abstract: Domestic work is mostly women domain, but it is not highly valued. Domestic work in the paid sphere has the similar value to the unpaid domestic work and hence it is not valued as a ‘work’. Participation of women in paid domestic work is increasing in spite of its low status with low remuneration. Thus, this study attempts to understand the reasons behind why women opt for paid domestic work and at the same time the researcher intents to explore their socio-economic condition. Further, by understanding their working conditions, researcher has tried to explore the changes that have enabled by paid domestic work in the lives of women. Paid domestic work has made a huge contribution to women's socio-economic growth by making them economically independent, aware about the outer world beyond the domestic sphere, enabled to maintain household expenditure and children's education. Women also said ‘paid domestic work’ as their own space, which has brought them self-respect, and work of dignity.
