Employment Growth in Rural India: Distress Driven?
The 61st round of NSS shows that there is a turnaround in employment growth in rural India after a phase of â€˜jobless growthâ€™. Paradoxically, this employment growth occurred during a period of wide spread distress in agriculture sector that include low productivity, price instability and stagnation leading to indebtedness. Under the typical neoclassical tradition, this trend would have predicted further contraction of employment in the rural economy. However, further probing reveals that employment growth in the rural areas is probably a response to the crisis that is gripping the agriculture sector. [WP No. 404].
