Project Description

Background

As per Census 2011, females constituted 48.5% of India’s population. Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) results indicate that the worker population ratio for females in rural sector was 17.5 and 51.7 for males in 2017-18. In Urban sector, the ratio is 14.2 for females and 53.0 for males. In both rural and urban areas, WPRs for females were considerably lower than WPRs for males.

These statistics are testimonial of status women in our country which need serious attention. A strong push and handholding support is required for empowering them to become independent and start playing active role in not only their household financial matter but also contribute to the national economy.
