The job loss in the manufacturing sector was somewhat offset by gains in the service sector. Eight lakh jobs were added in retail, e-commerce, repair and technical support in August. Nearly 1.5 crore people were engaged in the service sector in August against 1.42 crore in July.
Unemployment rate in India
The Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) figures shows that the unemployment rate had climbed to 8.32 per cent in August after a brief spell of improvement.
The latest unemployment rate is similar to the post-lockdown figure of 8.35 per cent recorded by the CMIE around this time last year.
CMIE – Job Loss in India
According to the CMIE data, the number of employed persons decreased from 39.97 crores in July to 39.78 crores in August, which indicates that 19 lakh people have lost their jobs over the past month. The CMIE statistics show that the monthly unemployment rate in May this year was 11.9 per cent, with over 1.5 crore jobs lost that month. This was the period when the second wave of the pandemic was wreaking havoc in the country.
The unemployment rate had dipped in June and July but edged up again in August.
Labour Economist on Current Unemployment issues
Labour economist Santosh Mehrotra said the unemployment situation was back to the level of the post-lockdown period in 2020.
“The unemployment crisis is the same as this time last year. According to the CMIE’s data, the share of agriculture in total employment was 35 per cent in 2017-18, which went up to 39.5 per cent in 2020-21. On the other hand, the share of the manufacturing sector in total employment dropped from 10 per cent to 7.5 per cent during this period. When more workers are joining agriculture, which is already crowded, it will depress the wage rate, which is what is happening,” Mehrotra said.
Mr Mehrotra said a developing nation should aspire for a workforce shift from agriculture to manufacturing and services. “The reverse is happening in India”. Source
