accorded equal treatment. The United Nations regard
gender equality as a human right. They point out that:
empowering women is also an indispensable tool for
advancing development and reducing poverty. Equal pay for
equal work is one of the areas where gender equality is
rarely seen, all too often women are paid less than men
for doing the same work.

The influential role of gender equality on economic
growth is most directly illustrated in the participation
of women in the labor force. When women are not involved
in the workforce, only part of the able workforce is
being utilized and, thus, economic resources are wasted.
Gender equality allows for an increase in women in the
working sector, thereby leading to an expansion of the
labor force and an increase in economic productivity. The
increasing contribution of women to the gross domestic
product (GDP) as well as to the economic growth of
country, proving that an increase in female participation
in the workforce undoubtedly will create economic growth.

While evaluations of the successes of public services
have focused on prices and efficiency, much less
attention has been paid to the impacts of liberalization
and privatization on employment, labor relations, and
working conditions. This book addresses this gap by
illustrating the ways in which liberalization has
contributed to increasing private and foreign ownership
of public services, the decentralization of labor
relations has amplified pressure on wages, and decreasing
employment numbers and increasing workloads have improved
productivity partly at the cost of service quality.

The hypothesis of the volume is that the smaller
reduction in poverty has been the result of slower
transformation of the economy from a primarily agrarian
to a modern, industrial one. Even as the GDP share of
agriculture has seen rapid decline, its employment share
has declined very gradually. More than half of the
workforce in India still remains in agriculture. In
addition, non-farm workers are overwhelmingly in the
informal sector. Against this background, the nine
original essays by eminent economists pursue three broad
themes using firm level data in both industry and
