Context:

BCCI, in a positive development, came up with the decision regarding ‘pay equity policy’ which is considered to be a step towards Gender Equality and justice.

The Pay Equity Policy:

  • Objective: Under the “pay equity policy”centrally contracted players, men and women both, will now receive the same match fees.
  • Equal pay as of men counterparts:Women players who till now were paid Rs. 1 lakh for a white-ball match and Rs. 4 lakh for a Test match, will now be paid Rs. 15 lakh for a Test, Rs. 6 lakh for a one-dayer and Rs.3 lakh for a T20 international. 
  • Significance: As, according to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap report 2022, India ranked 135 out of 146 countries on the gender gap index, with the country faring poorly on economic participation and opportunity. Hence, it tends to eliminate the present stance in the country and is a significant move towards Gender equality.
