Emerging Tendencies During the Post-Reform Period

First Edition

November 2006 | 168 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
This book critically examines the emerging trends in employment and unemployment in the Indian Economy during the post-reform era. Using the latest round of NSS data, the author studies the impact of these structural economic reforms on:

– Employment generation, with reference to different and competing sectors—rural / urban; agricultural / non-agricultural; organised / unorganised.
– Unemployment and underemployment, in terms of the apprehension that economic reforms lead to loss of employment.
–Casualisation of employment— that is, a belief that reforms lead to increase in the proportion of casual labour.
– Information of employment
–Feminisation of employment.

Unique in the fact that there is no comparable work on the topic, this book provides an excellent organisation of the material and a lucid presentation of the discussion and will be of enormous interest to economists, social scientists, policy makers, scholars and students.

The book is cohesive with respect to its central focus that of the impact on employment after structural and other reforms have been initiated.
