Subject:Women Studies/Gender Studies Paper: Women and economics

In order to guarantee that gender commitments are converted into financial commitments and gender mainstreaming of policy, programme and shames; the government of India introduced gender budgeting in 2004. In the Union Budget 2012-13, Ministry of Women and Child Development has been Rs.18500 crore (2012-13 BE), an increase of 15 % at current prices as compared to previous year’s Revised Estimate of Rs.16100 crore (2011-12). The total magnitude of the Gender Budget (outlays earmarked for women) has declined from 6.1 percent (2010-11 Budget Estimate) to 5.8 percent (2011-12 Revised Estimate). Further, there is a marginal increase of 0.1 percent in 2012-13 over the previous year. The coverage of ‘Gender Budgeting Statement’ in terms of the number of Union Government ministries/departments reporting in the Gender Budgeting Statement has remained stagnant at 33 for the sixth consecutive year. Except for the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, there is no new addition.
