“Skill-based learning can alter the growing unemployment rate in India,” says journalist Aman Chaudhary



It is a matter of fact and out in the public domain that India has witnessed a massive northward unemployment rate surge in the last few years. The outbreak of the novel Coronavirus in 2019 had further triggered this trend with labourers migrating to their hometowns, eventually forcing factories and industries to shut down. Several reports even suggested that India recorded the highest unemployment rate in the last 41 years, however, with a major push from the government on Skill-based training & learning and a boost to startups, things are slowly coming back to normalcy.

Talking about the rising unemployment rate and ways it can be controlled, Aman Chaudhary, a well-known journalist, and a policy commentator answers a few questions.

1. What according to you are the reasons for the massive rise in India’s Unemployment?

Well, there are several reasons that have contributed to the rise in India’s Unemployment rate. One of the main reasons is the increasing population rate and slow economic growth. Even the LPR (Labour Participation Rate) has been falling constantly, during the period of January to April 2022. In the rural area, it was 40.9% while in the urban area it was 37.2%. Another key reason for the increasing unemployment rate is the failure of the farm sector to absorb the influx of additional workers. The job loss in the farming sector was around 10 million. Whilst in the urban area there was a massive surge in the unemployment rate due to the Pandemic, as it led to many people losing their jobs.

2. Do you feel that the unemployment rate would drop in India?

I certainly feel that the unemployment rate in India will get better and it can already be seen. The unemployment rate has been dropping in the nation post-Covid. It has been observed that the Indian economy has been getting back to normalcy after suffering for the whole two years. The Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy’s (CMIE) statistics showed that the unemployment rate in February was 8.10% while in March it was 7.6%. Then in April, the rate further dropped to 7.5%. Even though the rate is still high for a developing country like India, still if the economy keeps getting better like this then the conditions will surely get more satisfactory.

3. Do you think that skill-based training and the boom in startups can lead to a decrease in the unemployment rate?

Indeed, the skill-based training and the boom in startups are helping to decrease the unemployment rate. These days employers all across the industries look for a skilled candidate, who not only has bookish knowledge but is also well equipped with practical skills. These new skill-based training courses in every realm are surely helping students gain specific training, and will ultimately help them get an upper hand when it comes to getting recruited. Due to this, the employment rate will increase and will lead to nations’ financial growth. In the same way, the boom in startups is also helping a lot of people in getting out of the loophole of unemployment. Startups are also assisting entrepreneurs in improving their prospects in the labor market, plus they are also useful in increasing human capital and expanding market networks.

4. What is your perspective on the initiatives taken by the country’s government to eradicate unemployment?

I personally feel that the government’s efforts in eradicating unemployment have been very effective. There have been numerous programs launched by the Indian government over the years to tackle the problem of unemployment. Programs like Employment Guarantee Scheme (EGS), Swarnajayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana (SGSY), Pradhan Mantri Rozgar Yojana (PMRY), Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS), Start-up India initiative, etc, have proven to be very beneficial. In the coming future also the government is planning to launch more programs to meet the demands of the people. 

5. Do you think that the advancement in technology has helped the employment sector to grow?

Technology has been nothing but a boon to every aspect of life, similarly, it has helped the employment sector as well. Initially, everyone thought that more machines means that work will be automated and will ultimately cause mass unemployment. However, technology has continually led to the creation of new jobs as new advancements need more human resources. In fact, technology increases labor productivity and job growth, which all eventually lead to the nation’s growth as a whole.
