Gender Disparity hold back the growth of individuals the development of nation s and the evolution of societies to the disadvantages of both women and men. Inequality between men and women is one of the most crucial disparities in many societies, and this is particularly so in India. On one level, gender disparity can be narrowly defined as the purely descriptive observation of different outcomes between males, and females. It contained in sex-ratio, literacy, workforce, and education and wage-rates and several other socio-cultural and behavioral indicators of empowerment (Nangia 2005). ).The present paper examines the extent of gender disparity in Belagavi District based on literacy and sex ratio using secondary data. We found that literacy rate in study area was 82.90 % in 2011 which is increased to 89.82 % in 2021 (as per census of 2011) (male-93.78% and female -85.84%) and sex ratio in the study area was 973 in 2011 which is increased to 988 in 2021. There are wide disparities from Rural to Urban sex ratio as well as Rural to Urban literacy rate. The urban sex ratio is higher than rural sex ratio in study area. The Rural sex ratio is 970 and urban sex ratio is 973 females per thousand males in the 2021. We found that in Belagavi district, there is reduction in gender disparities from 2011 to 2021 but the reduction rate is very slow.
