Abstract

India has experienced rapid economic growth, structural shifts in the economy, increase in educational attainment levels, and rapid urbanization in the last two-three decades. According to the World Bank report women’s now represent around 40 percent of the global labor force and more precisely on a country level women’s constitute around half of any country’s human endowment. However, in most of developing and under developed countries women’s labor force participation is facing situation of gender imbalance. In the light of above, this paper aims to investigate the determinants of women’s participation rate in Indian labour market thereby focusing on the impact of educational determinant on the women’s participation in both urban and rural labour market of India. After doing the detailed review of past studies it comes to know the gaps which need to be addressed in this study which can precede the research further on Indian labour market. Accordingly, the methodology has framed which incorporates the regression analysis and other statistical tools to draw the results. Additionally, the objectives in this paper can help the researchers, policy makers, academicians, etc to understand that how the determinants enable the status of women’s participation in labour market (D-WPLM) The gaps in this study are deeply focused to understand the past and present situation so as to look a way forward for taking corrective decisions with respect to more and more women’s participation in labour force.
