NEW DELHI: Amid much hue and cry it has become difficult to say whether the rate of unemployment has been increased or being controlled since the high level sources of Niti Ayog itself confused about the reality. They are saying that data has not been updated. On the other hand the ruling party BJP stagnates over the issue and claimed that situation is differed as painted by the opposition political parties. In the recent interim budget it has also mentioned that on the employment has given much thrust in the five year term of present government. The CEO of Niti Ayog Amitabh Kant also approve by saying that app based jobs has been increased manifolds. He categorically mentioned the registration list of Ola and Uber, through a large number of youths being absorbed. The Niti Aayog stepped in to clarify on the survey that claimed India’s unemployment rate rose to a 45-year high during 2017-2018, calling it a draft report and that some parts of the jobs data was still being processed.
About the data NITI Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar said that it was not right to publish the report in an incomplete manner. He had said that we used to rectify the datas of unemployment through our internal mechanism in certain quarters of time. And this not the exact figure on which discussion is going on.
Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant recounted the major problems facing our economy. Lack of good quality jobs and a large informal sector is adding to our economic woes stated Kant.
Evidently employment was main poll plank of BJP but less has been done. It might a matter of discussion or political tussle but youths of your country could not get their due during this period. And we must admit that unemployment is the bigger issue in the country which should be addressed properly irrespective to any political gain or loss.
The assessment by the National Sample Survey Office conducted between July 2017-June 2018, showed the unemployment rate stood at 6.1 percent, the highest since 1972-73, published and reported in our media. The report said that joblessness stood at 7.8 percent in urban areas compared with 5.3 parts in the countryside.
The gloomy jobs data could be awkward for ruling party and now they came in a defending mode while opposition takes no stone unturned to malice the government tall claims.
But, while India’s economy has been expanding by 7 percent plus annually — the fastest pace among major economies — its uneven growth has meant that there are not enough new jobs to keep pace. And critics say the government’s claims of economic success have sounded increasingly hollow.
