This study is an attempt to identify social norms that affects the entrepreneurial intention in the entrepreneurially deficient state uttarakhand. The empirical study is based on a sample of 880 graduation final year students studying in different colleges of uttarakhand. On the basis of literature review and focus group interviews a questionnaire was prepared and administered on the sample. Pearsionâ€™s chi-square test was used to find out statistical relationship between the respondents with and without entrepreneurial intention and their perception for social norms and studentâ€™s t-test was used to compare mean score and significance of the results. Only two variables which are stated as, â€œmaximum people want to do salaried job in our societyâ€ and â€œmore often a person who is unable to get job, starts his/her business in our societyâ€ were found statistically significant. T-test also supports this finding. Only one variable which is asked as, â€œmore often a person who is unable to get job, starts his/her business in our societyâ€ was found statistically significant. The mean value of the response for this item is also high for the respondents with non-entrepreneurial career choice than the respondents with entrepreneurial career choice. The findings of t-test used to examine the relationship between overall score of the social norms and career choice of the respondents, are also non significant.
