The Centre on Monday said surveys depict “a declining female labour force participation rate”. The government said this decline could be attributed to higher participation of women in education and migration. In a reply to BJP’s Rita Bahuguna Joshi, Labour and Minister said the government had taken initiatives to improve women’s participation, like setting up child care centres, time-off for feeding children and enhancement in paid maternity leave.
