Abstract
This article attempted to examine the utilization of remittances forthe wellbeing of households at
the origin. We conducted this study in District Bagh of Pakistan administered Kashmir. We
engaged epistemological cannons in the positivistic tradition of quantitative research design.
Moreover, we applied cross-sectional research method. We collected data from (N=200)
familieson household level. The families were identified and enumerated by means of snowball
sampling technique. An interview schedule was designed to collect the data. Hence, the data was
collected, checked, and analyzed.Findings of Chi-Square analysis revealed remittances as major
source of income for households. We, thus, found that remittances significantly improved the
socioeconomic conditions of families. Primarily, families utilize remittances either to develop or
promote existing businesses. Similarly, remittances are spent to repay the debts, spend on
construction, and maintenance of houses. In the same fashion, remittances were used to improve
the family livelihood, health, and education of the children. Moreover, financial status improved
the social status by purchasing vehicles and participating in the social events. It is therefore
concluded that families utilized remittances for the sake of wellbeing of families at the origin.

Key words: Migration. Remittances, wellbeing, Household, Culture, Income
