India contributes $1 mn to UN Women
United Nations: India has made a USD million contribution to the core voluntary budget of United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women for financial year 2012- 2013.

India's Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Hardeep Singh Puri handed over the cheque to UN Women Executive Director Michele Bachelet here yesterday.

The contribution constitutes the third installment of India's multi-year pledge to provide USD five million as core predictable funding to UN Women's resources and takes its total contribution so far to UN Women to USD three million.

Puri also reaffirmed the Indian government's "steadfast commitment to the goals of gender equality, empowerment of women and gender mainstreaming enshrined in the mandate of UN Women," a statement from India's mission to the UN said.

India is one of the founding members of the Executive Board of the UN Women and is presently serving on the board.
