TARI, in collaboration with FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO), administered the Gender Parity Index (GPI) and prepared a report on the results of the GPI survey for the formal sector in India. The report was formally released by the Hon’ble Finance Minister, Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman on 7th May, 2018 at a function held at FICCI. The survey was administered by TARI over the course of one year, responses of individual respondents collated, cleaned up to facilitate analysis, critically analysed and then scored in accordance with the scoring methodology in the GPI Toolkit. The toolkit was released earlier by the Former Finance Minister Late Shri Aun Jaitley in April 2017. By participating in this survey, respondents have made a valuable contribution in a project to track best practices in industry on gender matters. The results are expected to lead to organisational introspection among those that have not performed as well as others and an effort at improvement even by high-ranking performers.
Corruption afflicts all countries, undermining social progress and breeding inequality and injustice. When desperately needed development funds are stolen by corrupt individuals and institutions, poor and vulnerable people are robbed of education, healthcare and other essential services
