India, said As with most things in

India, officially the Republic of India
is a country in South
Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area,
the populous
country (with over 1.2 billion people), As it is clear the population in India
is very high as result of that, there are lots of people are looking for jobs
to continue in the life, so the gender pay gap is one of the biggest challenges
for the government in India.   In an agricultural country like India more than

quickly as necessary, and fail to harness the experience and value of its
employees.
