Employment has increased by about 5 lakh during July-September, 2009 over June 2009, the Economic Survey, 2009-10 states. The Survey also points out that during the previous quarter of April-June 2009 employment declined by 1.31 lakh at overall level.These findings are based on the fourth quarterly quick employment survey launched in the third week of October 2009. In this survey, information was collected from 2873 units by covering 21 centres spread across 11 States/UTs. Eight sectors, namely textiles, leather, metals, automobiles, gems & jewellery, transport, IT/BPO and handloom/powerloom were covered.

All the seven sectors, except leather, have registered an increase in employment during the quarter July-September, 2009 over June 2009. On the contrary, during April-June 2009 quarter all sectors, except leather, automobiles and handloom/powerloom, experienced a decrease in employment, probably due to seasonality.

Employment during the July-September 2009 quarter has increased substantilly in textiles (3.18 lakh) followed by metals (0.65 lakh) and gems & jewellery (0.58 lakh). However, the previous quarterly survey for the period April-June 2009 found that employment had declined in all three sectors by 1.54 lakh, 0.01 lakh and 0.20 lakh respectively.

The previous quarterly survey results for the period April-June 2009 over March 2009 showed a substantial decline in the employment of direct category workers. As a departure from the April-June 2009 quarter wherein the employment of direct category of workers had declined, a significant increase was observed during the July-Septermber 2009 quarter. About 80 per cent of the increase in employment that occurred during the July-September 2009 quarter was in direct category workers.

Though increase in employment is more in non-exporting units, exporting units have also shown a significant recovery by registering an increase in employment to the extent of 2.04 lakh during July-Septermber 2009 over June 2009.
