Much of the existing studies on occupational segregation in India have largely focused on gender-based occupational segregation. However, the occupational segregation experienced based on gender is not similar across the different social groups(caste and religion). The intersectionality of gender and social group can be a basis for analysis of occupational segregation in a population. This paper provides empirical evidence on occupational segregation by the intersectional axes of gender and social group in India. Further, this paper documents the monetary gains and losses of each group due to their occupational segregation.
