The Present Study attempts to assess the influence of marital status on occupational stress among employees of Information Technology companies. A total of 600 (205 married and 395 unmarried) respondents completed the Occupational Stress Index questionnaire (Srivastava & Singh, 1984).One-way ANOVA was employed to find out the significance of differences between them on subscales of occupational stress and total occupational stress. Results revealed that a significant difference was found among married and unmarried I.T employees on the subscales- unreasonable group and political pressure, responsibility for persons, under participation and powerlessness. However significant difference was not found on other subscales and total occupational stress. It was also observed that married employees had comparatively more stress on the subscales- ‘unreasonable group and political pressure’ and ‘responsibility for persons’ and unmarried employees had comparatively more scores on subscales-‘under participation’ and ‘powerlessness’.
