Question:

For each of the sectors that we came across in this chapter why should one focus on employment and GDP? Could there be other issues which should be examined? Discuss.

Answer:

Every sector covered in this chapter should focus on employment and GDP growth as both these, employment and growth in GDP are very important for economic development. This has also been the primary goal of our five year plans. All the three sectors have contributed significantly to the GDP and employment in the development of the country. Over time, the contribution of all the three sectors has also increased. But the maximum contribution to the GDP has been from the tertiary sector. Employment has increased in all sectors, but still about 60% of India's population is employed in the primary sector. Apart from this, many goals can be achieved by linking each sector to GDP and employment. Such as poverty alleviation, development of modern technology and reducing disparities of development in the economic sector etc.
