If Development is not engendered, it is endangered, this rightly focuses on development- human development that would be complete only if both the gender is offered equal opportunities to grow. Development is defunct, redundant and incomplete if half of the millions of population remain voiceless, undervalued and underutilized. The present study is an attempt to gauge gender related development- proposed by HDR 1995 and reformulated in 2010. The measurement index viz Gender inequality Index (GII) encompassing Gender development index and Gender empowerment index is used in the study for understanding gender inequality across states of India with special reference to Gujarat. The indicators used for developing GII for states are same as that in HDR 2010. Owing to unavailability of adolescent fertility rate (AFR) across states of India, total fertility rate (TFR) is used.

Keywords: Gender Inequality, Education Attainments, Labour Force Participation Rate, Gender Empowerment Measure
