Abstract: As duality of universe like day and night exits for its movement of forwardness, the opposition of women and men is an undeniable element for running the society. In the history the gender impartiality has showed a significant role in the growth of economic and social development of the society. Because of that, calls for better balance between male and female participation become more feasible and sensible. Hence , in the backdrop of recent women friendly labour laws and old labour law’s amendments like the Maternity Benefit Amendment Act, 2017, The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition, and Redressal) Act, 2013, The Equal Remuneration Act, 1976,States’s Shops and Establishments Acts and the central government liberalisation in the Factories Act, 1948, in 2015 and newly eased out policies of recruitment to allow women workers to work in underground coal mines, are being examined the women’s labour participation position in the country. It resulted that to score, gender balance , not only the in workplace but at political, economic and social levels , generally depends on the evolution of the mind-set of the society, where should have the state of equal ease of access to resources and opportunities regardless of gender for economic participation, decision-making, valuing different behaviours, aspirations and needs with support of women-friendly policies and programme based on labour regulations and its proper implementation.
