Unexplored â€œBill of Rightsâ€: A Magna Carta for Gender Justice and Budgeting in India
Working Papers from eSocialSciences
This paper explores the â€œBill of Rightsâ€ in the Justice Verma Committee Report as an analytical framework for gender budgeting in justice. Gender budgeting in justice, as a public good, needs effective planning and financing strategies more than just a Budget Head on â€œNirbhaya Fundâ€ in national budgets. As gender budgeting in justice is more effective at the decentralized levels, a gender-conscious fiscal devolution, rather than â€œone size fits allâ€ gender budgeting policies, should be designed as the plausible entry point to integrate gender justice in fiscal federalism. If â€œclimate changeâ€ is already integrated in the TOR of Finance Commission in India, can â€œTOR on genderâ€ in the Commission be far behind?
