Indian firm Morphogenesis has become one of the world's first architecture practices to report a gender pay gap in favour of its female employees.

The leading firm, which has offices in Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru, announced a "gender-positive pay gap", ahead of International Women's Day on 8 March.

Data calculated using the median of its staff's salaries showed women at the studio earn 2.05 per cent more than men on average.

The company also revealed that women lead four of its five departments.
