Gender budgeting in India: An administrative study
Gender inequality is a serious issue that governments throughout the world are attempting to solve. According to the McKinsey Global Institute, closing the gender gap in India alone would improve business-as-usual GDP by 18% by 2025. (2018). Given this, spending public funds efficiently might be one of the most efficient methods to target the proper audience. Gender responsive budgeting (GRB) was first used in India in 2005. This study will go over the many stages of GRB in India, from gathering gender-disaggregated data to producing handbooks on implementation frameworks. It will also cover how obstacles were overcome at various stages and lessons acquired. Some potential lessons include how GRB might be used as a powerful policy tool to eliminate inequality and promote inclusion. This will also go through current gaps and provide recommendations to close them. Gender Resource Budgeting (GRB) is an extremely effective technique for promoting gender equality and empowerment. This report examines gender budgeting patterns in India, which is the responsibility of the Ministry of Women and Child Development. Gender Budgeting Cells (GBCs) appear to be mostly dysfunctional. Taking notice of the Gender Gap Report, the paper offers a strong suggestion to enhance the health of girls and women, increase their economic engagement, and increase female political representation at the state assembly and national parliament levels through reservation.
