Indian female labour-force participation dropped from 34% in 2006 to 24.8% in 2020: UNGC Study

In accordance with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC)India study, India is the only country among the 153 surveyed countries where the economic gender gap is larger than the political gap. Its female labour-force participation has declined from 34% in 2006 to 24.8% in 2020. Key Points: If women participation raised in the labour force same as men then it can boost India’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) by 27%. Globally, 7% of employed women are working in agriculture, forestry and fisheries, but only 13.8% of landholders are women.
