Gujarat Aims to Impart Skills Training to Increase Women’s LFPR

Women now have more reserved seats and no tuition fees in ITIs, with no upper age limit for admission

The state government has devised an extensive strategy to boost women’s involvement in the state’s workforce, with the goal of surpassing the existing 27 per cent participation rate.

As reported by officials from the state’s labour, skill development, and employment departments, India records a labour force participation rate (LFPR) of 24.8 per cent for women, while in Gujarat, it stands at a slightly higher 27 per cent.
