How Gendered Is the Gender Budget?

The gender budget aims to close the gender gaps and empower women by recognising their capacity to overcome obstacles. The main purpose of this article is to evaluate the allocations made under various heads of departments and ministries in the current gender budget of 2023–24 and their comparison with the previous allocations. The article examines the shortcomings in the allocation and also evaluates the usefulness of gender budgeting as a technique for reducing the gender gaps. In order to make it an effective tool, the allocation of the budget must be diversifi ed so that it has a wider outreach and impact. Instead of allocating ample funds to a single scheme or department, equitable distribution and priority sectors must be taken more into consideration.
