DATA STORY : Women In Bureaucracy

  • Published
    11th Jan, 2022

Women represent half of the population of the country. As per latest NFHS (National family health survey), female to male ratio is 1020 in India. In comparison to this data, Labor force participation rate of women (LFPR) is mere 21% and only 31% women are presently serving as IAS officers in India. This not only creates inequality in administration but also hampers gender sensitive policy framing and implementation in India.

In line with that, there is a need to assess past trends and present data regarding the representation of women at all India level, at state level and monitor state wise trends. The Gross enrollment ratio (GER) of women in higher education reflects that the need to promote education and create awareness the facilities for participation in bureaucracy.

Some steps to improve female representation in bureaucracy-

  • Reservation- Some states has taken this step, but is missing in many states and at central level.
  • Awareness, free coaching and residential facilities- This will remove entry barriers and promote their participation and preparation for civil services exams.
  • Reducing drop out in higher education- Education is the first step to promote their participation in bureaucracy.
