PACS were introduced in India to meet the credit needs of farmers. The study has been conducted to find out the attitude of beneficiaries and non- beneficiaries towards the working of PACS and to find out the association between socio-economic profile and attitude of respondents. A non- random sampling procedure has been used to draw a sample of 120 respondents of which 60 were beneficiaries and 60 were non-beneficiaries, from changanassery taluk of Kottayam district, Kerala. The study revealed that more than two fifth of beneficiaries (41.67%) were having medium level of attitude followed by low (36.67%) to high level (21.67 %). Among the non- beneficiaries majority (58.33%) were having low level of attitude followed by medium (31.67%) to high level (10%). It clearly shows that most of the farmers are not satisfied with the working of PACS. Hence the officials should take immediate actions to improve the performance of PACS.
