Changes in work opportunities and empowerment of the people of Purulia during Last Two Census decades
One of the objectives of development planning was to increase work opportunities and empower people to reap the fruits of economic development. Various steps have been taken by different governments through various incentives & policy interventions to fulfill this objective. To study how far this has been achieved at Purulia, we havel used four parameters – literacy rate, gender gap in literacy rate, level of urbanization & population density. Development programmes implemented at Purulia have yielded mixed results. In case of spread of education in general and female education in particular results are encouraging but empowerments are not transferred into employability. Vulnerability of workers are increasing as casual works are replacing permanent works.
