Since its inception, Indian society has been dominated by men. Women were always thought to be inferior to men. But the time has passed. In the Indian society, various laws are enacted to provide women with security and special status. For many years, the government has also provided tax breaks to women. Some legal provisions exist solely to benefit women in society. The second proviso to section 149(1) of the Companies Act, 2013, which provides for the appointment of women directors, is an effort to empower women in India. The current paper focuses on the inclusion of women director in company board of directors, issues and challenges of female board representation and assessed whether the inclusion has profited the company or not.
