Current Issues of Employment Policy in India

The growth performance of the Indian economy, though not spectacular, has been decent by the standards of developing countries. But growth has failed to improve employment conditions in the country even though the rate of labour force growth has so far been quite low.

This paper analyses the past experience in an effort to identify the problems that must be urgently addressed. It then proposes a few ideas for future policy.
