This paper explores issues of occupational distribution, wage rates, and total earnings in the Indian labour market over the last decade across social classes, regions, gender, and job types. The relative roles played by discrimination during entry and wage setting, and that by endowment in explaining the occupational and earning disparities have been examined through Decomposition technique.
