  1. Charles-Before moving to UK, I worked for about 8 years in the public sector (Central Government) in India, and found the same disparity over there.

    Therefore my comments hold for India and UK, as I do not think the attitudes in the private sector have changed that much since I left India!

    Yes, I have just seen Amitabh Bachchan’s interview with BBC’s Yogita Limaya.

    Having worked in UK in the public sector for over 30 years, I think that public sector (especially Professional employments) offers the same grade/scale to both genders, but in the private sector, where there are no grading, especially in the non-professional positions, the disparity exists.
