Factory Sector of Manufacturing

In my paper “Trade Unions and Business Firms: Unorganised Manufacturing in West Bengal” (EPW, 6 February 2010) I intended to do an analysis of net value added (NVA), employment, labour productivity and wage share in NVA in the four states of West Bengal, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu for the factory sector of manufacturing. Unfortunately, the error was that I did the analysis for the whole of the factory sector. While the conclusions may not change drastically, the correct analysis would be of the factory sector of manufacturing alone, which I intend to carry out.
