The paper examines gender discrimination in household resource allocation with spatial reference to private health care expenditure; understand the role of factors underlying the discrimination. To estimate deference as well as discrimination this paper used Percentage Gap Ratio (PGR) and Bliender-Oaxaca (B-O) decomposition with help of two round (60th and 71th) national representative NSSO unit level data.

Results indicate that average health spending for female is not only; always lower than that of male regardless of type of social as well as economic group and survey rounds but this gap is also increase significantly over the period of time. The results indicate that there is clear gender bias in favor of man in rural and urban sector. This bias is also visible when we take into account the socio-economic indicators in India.
