TARI conducted a study on ‘Female Labour Force Participation in India’ to analyse India’s performance in female labour force participation (FLFP) in comparison with the rest of the world and to identify factors that determine FLFP in India along with the barriers to its growth. This study commissioned by ASSOCHAM presents a state-wise analysis of FLFP in four states in India selected on a non-arbitrary criteria. There was a special focus on UP as it is India’s most populous state with enormous potential to improve current national trends in female labour force participation. The other states selected for the study were Andhra Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
