ABSTRACT

The existence of a gender differential in the wages for labour market services represents a universal phenomenon found in almost all countries regardless of the nature and structure of their economic systems. Worldwide, on average, women currently continue to be paid approximately 20 per cent less than men. According to The Global Wage Report 2016-17 published by the International Labour Organization in 2016, the gender pay gap in India is among the highest in the world.

Using the WageIndicator (Paycheck.in) continuous and voluntary web salary survey dataset this report analyses the Gender Pay Gap in India in 2018. Key findings include that gender pay gap increases with higher education, higher skill levels, higher tenure, company’s growing size and the prestige of the occupations covered.
