Synopsis of the paper

Gender-responsive budgeting (GRB) was first introduced at the Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995 in Beijing, China, to inculcate in decision-makers the principle of looking at national budgets through a gendered lens. This paper analyses India’s progress in GRB, and offers a comparison with Rwanda — the best performer in Sub-Saharan Africa in closing its gender gap index, and Bangladesh, the leader in South Asia.
