Changing Employment Scenario in India –Some Reflections since Liberalization


  • L Krishna Veni


This study makes an attempt to evaluate the employment scenario in different sectors of Indian economy since the inception of liberalized policies. It is observed that the performance of the primary sector is pessimistic, moderate in manufacturing sector and satisfactory in service sector. It is disgusting to note that the regression coefficient of GDP on employment of the primary sector is found negative. In the manufacturing sector the results have not indicated any significant impact up to the expectations of the policy makers. Results suggest that the importance of primary sector and manufacture sector cannot be ignored. Appropriate technology to suit the indigenous needs, removal of rural urban disparities in service sector, replacement of production-oriented plan with employment-oriented plan, implementation of VRS in phased manner, changing educational system, population control etc., are suggested to solve the sectoral disparities in India.
