Declining Participation of Indian Women in the Workforce
India's Female Labour Force Participation Rate (FLFP) is at its historic low of 24% against 55.9% men's participation as per the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) report. We are a country that talks of demographic dividend and almost 50% of our population is female. This is a completely untapped skill force, but instead of India engaging its women in the workforce, we are seeing a decline in their participation.
