Abstract: 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. Pearsion’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 student’s t-test was used to compare mean score and significance of the results. Only two variables which are stated as, “maximum people want to do salaried job in our society†and “more often a person who is unable to get job, starts his/her business in our society†were found statistically significant. T-test also supports this finding. Only one variable which is asked as, “more often a person who is unable to get job, starts his/her business in our society†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.
