GRB is an important mechanism in order to maintain a greater balance between economic and social goals. GRB are used in order achieve Gender Equality and to close Gender gap. In order to address this issue Government has taken various steps towards women empowerment in the recent past. Women’s Equality and empowerment is one of the important goals of the Government.
