Question:

A study in Ahmedabad found that out of 15,00,000 workers in the city, 11,00,000 worked in the unorganised sector. The total income of the city in this year (1997-1998) was Rs 60,000 million. Out of this Rs 32,000 million was generated in the organised sector. Present this data as a table. What kind of ways should be thought of for generating more employment in the city?

Answer:

Data regarding Ahmedabad City (1997-98)

Sectors of Economy Number of Labourers Income (In Lakhs)
Organised Sector 4,00,000 32,000
Unorganised Sector 11,00,000 28,000
Total 15,00,000 60,000

From the study of these figures, it is concluded that the workers in the organized sector are less engaged as compared to the unorganized sector but their income is more than the unorganized sector. This means that the workers working in the unorganized sector get very low wages. These methods can be considered for generating more employment in the city

1. The form of education has to be changed. Education should be technical and vocational so that more and more people get engaged in work.

2. People should get proper financial and technical assistance to start selfemployment.
