Employment situation of India in 2012



Over the next 10 to 20 years, the
already large portion of the population
within the working-age cohort (62% in
2005), will continue to expand further,
implying a significant increase in the
supply of labor. India will likely add
close to 250 million workers to the
labor pool between 2005 and 2025.
Furthermore, there are nearly 30 million
young people putting themselves through
more education in the hope of being
able to access better jobs. The number
of young people in secondary and
tertiary education is at least 55 million.
Estimates indicate that India needs at least
55 million additional jobs by 2015 to maintain
the current ratio of employed people to
total population at 39%. This would be
nearly twice the jobs created during 2005-
2010, according to a report from CRISIL
Research, an independent research house.
The Indian economy projects it will create
87.37 million new jobs by 2015, according
to a report by the Associated Chambers
of Commerce & Industry (Assocham).
The most significant growth will come
from the manufacturing sector, which will
add 32% (27.88 million) of the new jobs.
Trade will be next with 24.24 million jobs,
following construction with 15.13 million.
Tourism-related employment, information
technology (IT) and IT-enabled services
(ITeS), and financial services will also grow.
In the longer term, India is aiming
to create 100 million jobs in the
manufacturing sector by 2020.
India’s labor force is
forecast to expand
tremendously in the
long-term. With the world’s
second-largest population
of 1.2 billion, India already
has tremendous potential in
terms of labor resources.

EDUCATION: The country has set a target
to upskill 500 million people by 2022.
The most significant part of the plan is

Modular Employable Skills (MES). The
main objective of the scheme is to provide
employable skills to school leavers,
existing workers, ITI graduates, etc.
IMMIGRATION: The country has recently
removed the quota on employment
visas, in favor of requiring a minimum
annual salary for foreign nationals. This

only highly-skilled foreign talent.
