The study was conducted to identify some of the managerial gaps that affect utilization of Antenatal services. Fifty two women aged 15-39 yrs., drawn from 22 households were studied in depth. This article identifies some of the demographic and socio-cultural factors affecting utilization pattern. The degree of utilization was significantly related to education of the woman and her husband«SQ»s occupation, caste, parity and cultural factors. All women lived within 1 Km from the Health Centre, did not use the services at all, thereby indicating the presence of other factors influencing their attitude towards use of services.
