Women empowerment is an ongoing process and not a one-off initiative. The Union Budget lays down the roadmap for the entire fiscal year. It is crucial to increase allocation to women-related schemes. Moreover, the government should take steps to ensure the creation of more job opportunities for women. Hence, the Budget should prioritize appropriate skilling and training programs for women, grant certain incentives to women-led start-ups and strengthen access to mentoring and incubator networks. At the same time, it is essential to sensitize people on the significance of women empowerment by supporting Information, Education and Communication efforts.
