Employment Trends since economic liberalisation
In most of the industrialised countries as well as large emerging markets, economic growth tends to follow few patterns. One of these patterns is the reduced share of agriculture in both GDP and employment. Present Indian government is putting great emphasis on liberalisation of economy as well as allowing foreign investors to boost India’s manufacturing sector. The main aim of these measures is to create jobs in non-agriculture sectors so that a huge workforce that is employed in agriculture because of distraught situation could migrate to industries and services. Historical data however suggests that liberalisation has failed to create proportionate non-agriculture employment and the job situation in the country is not very different from the pre-liberalisation days.
