Addressing Jobless Growth:Strategies for Employment in India



  Nov 16, 2023

Tackling Jobless Growth in India



Q: Why is India experiencing jobless growth despite economic expansion?

A: India's growth has been driven by the service sector, which employs less than 30% of the population. Manufacturing, traditionally a significant job creator, has shifted towards capital-intensive methods, reducing employment opportunities.

Q: What factors contribute to the lack of job creation in manufacturing?

A: The transition to capital-intensive production, limited growth of MSMEs, and lack of investment in industries like food processing contribute to reduced job creation in manufacturing.

Q: How can India address joblessness in its growing economy?

A: Key strategies include labor reforms, boosting investment in labor-intensive manufacturing, enhancing education and skills training, and promoting entrepreneurship.

Q: What role do labor reforms play in tackling joblessness?

A: Labor reforms can increase wage incentives, encourage hiring, and improve employment elasticity in various sectors, particularly manufacturing.

Q: Why is it important to focus on education and skill development?

A: Education and skill development aligned with industrial needs can enhance employability and support the growth of entrepreneurship, leading to job creation.

Q: How can India reduce gender disparities in employment?

A: Addressing sector-wise gender gaps, particularly in manufacturing, transport, and construction, and enhancing female labor force participation are crucial steps.
