In this research paper, an attempt has been made to find the professional and personal challenges and enhancers for work life balance amongst working women through a survey of 186 women working in the IT sector in India. The main challenges in professional life were found to be extended/odd working hours, travel time between home and workplace and participation in additional jobs and assignments. In personal life, the main stresses were guilty of not being able to take care of self and elders at home. Social media interaction was found to be stress busters for most women. Most women would prefer flexible timing, and supportive spouse, family and friends as well as an environment conducive for work at the office.
