Where are the Jobs?

1. BJP and PM Modi came to power promising 2 crore new jobs every year. By simple calculation, BJP government should have created 6 crore jobs. Labour Ministry figures, however, reflect that only 1.35 lakh jobs were created in the year 2015 i.e. lowest in seven years. Unemployment is at a 5 year high and under-employment is at a staggering 35% of the work force.

2. By 2028, India need to create 34.35 crore jobs i.e. 3 to 4 crore jobs a year. How will that happen?

3. According to experts, 60% of people in the unorganized sector will not be able to find employment for the entire year in 2017 indicating chronic under-employment and catastrophic consequences.

4. Even in the IT sector, most rating agencies predicted 40% job losses. BJP government is, however, completely immune to this epidemic of unemployment and joblessness that plagued India’s young.
