India Today - - UPFRONT -

Fi­nance min­is­ter Arun Jait­ley re­ferred to the an­nual Eco­nomic Sur­vey, pre­sented in Par­lia­ment on Jan­u­ary 29, as a “must-read... doc­u­ment on the In­dian econ­omy”.

Chief Eco­nomic Ad­vi­sor Arvind Subra­ma­nian noted in the sur­vey that while there were sev­eral gov­ern­ment schemes aimed at the ed­u­ca­tion and empowerment of In­dian women, much was still left to be done for their so­cial up­lift.
