Introduction to Gender Budgeting: Girls has proved that if they are not more, then at least they are not less able than boys. Girls are seen as appointed in almost every job and at every post; even with such facts government can not change the mentality or the residing beliefs of the society. As a result sex ration is increasing, it is leaning towards the males, i.e. population of males as compared to females, is gradually becoming greater. Abortion rates are getting higher and encouragement for girls-development is getting lesser.

Therefore above described facts has created a situation where a girl is suppressed, her efforts are assumed to have no value; if girls  are not suppressed, at least they are also not encouraged, no child on earth has taken birth, with a desire, to  fight for his dreams then a little child who is  still unknown about the “rights” and “wrongs” of the society, how could fight for dreams and overcomes from her obstacles.
