Main Description
Globalization and the subsequent changes are affecting all national economies, irrespective of whether it is a transitional, controlled, socialist, or market economy. The result of this change is a paradigm shift in the employment structure of most of the countries. A common trend observed worldwide is that employment is moving away from traditional agriculture/industry and more to services. This volume evaluates the employment scenario in different sectors of Indian economy after the reforms period. It also makes a comparative study of employment scenario between Gujarat, one of the developed states in western India, and the country as a whole. Employment intensity of economic growth - with focus on rural transformation, social security, quality and employability, survival of marginalized laboring poor, and social income - throws light on the realistic scenario. Retail boom, the establishment of special economic zones, as well as social security schemes - such as India's Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act - have suggestive thrusts in the domain of employment and consequences such as migration and their effects on society and culture.
