Abstract

This study discussed about the various schemes launching by the government of India to empowerment of the women in India. The Government of India is implementing a number of programmes, for improving access to employment, education, health, infrastructure development, urban development, etc. Some of these are flagship programmes like Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, Integrated Child Development Scheme, Sarva Siksha Abhiyan and National Rural Health Mission. Further, in recognition of the role played by infrastructure in poverty removal, the Government also launched a time-bound plan under Bharat Nirman in 2005. In order to ensure that women are equal beneficiaries in all programmes, their needs and concerns are incorporated. Many of these, especially the infrastructure delivery programmes, although seemingly gender neutral, often have a differential impact on women in view of their different life experiences, requirements, socio-cultural drivers and priorities. These constraints in this article have been identified and addressed.

Keywords: Government Role in Empowerment in India; Various Pragrammes for Empowerment of Women; Five Year Plans focuses on Empowerment of Women in India
