Mys­tery of miss­ing jobs for women

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

In­dian women are grad­u­ally fall­ing off the job map. A World Bank pa­per shows that while the fe­male work­force is ris­ing in most parts of the world, it is slid­ing in In­dia. Just 27% of workingage women were em­ployed in 2015-2016, re­ports Su­bodh Varma. In Nepal, women labour force em­ploy­ment is 79.9% while in Bangladesh it is 57.4% which is miles ahead of us. Only Pak­istan, at 24.6%, has a lower rate.
