Abstract This research paper focuses on Sustainable Development Goal-5 (SDG-5) in India and analyses the government's efforts to promote gender equality and women's empowerment. The study examines various programs such as Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Mahila E-Haat, PM Ujjwala Yojana, and Sukanya Samridhi Yojana, among others, to assess the progress made towards achieving SDG-5 targets. The findings suggest that India has made significant strides in addressing gender disparities and improving women's socio-economic status in various sectors. However, despite notable achievements, several challenges persist, hindering the full realization of SDG-5 objectives. This paper provides valuable insights into the effectiveness of government interventions, identifies areas for improvement, and offers recommendations for policymakers and stakeholders to advance gender equality and women's empowerment efforts in India.
