NCEUS proposes formation of National Fund for unorganised sector

Apr '07
The National Commission for Enterprises in the Unorganized Sector (NCEUS), set up by the Government of India as an advisory body and a watchdog for the informal sector, under the Ministry of Small Scale Industries and Agro and Rural Industries, has proposed to recommend the formation of a National Fund designed to meet the multi purpose needs of both enterprises and workers in the unorganized sector.

Addressing a Press Conference here the Chairman of the Commission, Dr. Arjun Sengupta said that the tasks proposed to be handled by the Fund were extensive as the sector needed a holistic approach for its development taking into account all essential needs covering finance, technology, raw material, marketing, infrastructure, skill and entrepreneurship and would cover both farm and non-farm sectors and also rural and urban areas.

The Commission's findings show that forty per cent of the workers in the unorganised agricultural and non-agricultural sector are wage workers and sixty per cent are self-employed. Among the self-employed, the overwhelming majority are own account or assisting family workers and only 1.15 % (among non-agricultural workers) are employers.

Dr. Sengupta said that the vast majority of the self-employed in the unorganised sector themselves worked under poor conditions and the productivity of their enterprises was low. Measures to protect the livelihood of the self-employed workers and to promote the productivity of the unorganisedenterprises, will not only have an impact on the condition of the self-employed, but also on the condition of the unorganised wage workers who work in the unorganised enterprises.
