Textile sector shows decline in employment generation

24
May '10
During January-March this year, employment generation in the textile sector, including apparels, dropped by 119,000 compared to the jobs generated during October-December 2009.

Other sectors like handloom or power-loom and transport are experiencing the same situation, though the government claims that, the Indian economy is experiencing revival after being adversely affected by the global financial crisis.

Employment decrease in these sectors is more than the overall increase of employment of 61,000 in the other sectors during January-March 2010 compared to October-December 2009.

A quarterly quick employment survey was conducted last month by the Labour Bureau of the Union Labour and Employment Ministry in the affected sectors, with January-March 2010, as the study period.

Under this survey, the sample industrial units, which were covered in the previous surveys, were revisited to appraise the changes in employment. The Labour Bureau collected the employment information from 2,815 industrial units in 21 centres spread across eleven states and union territories. The bureau is assigned to study the effect of economic slowdown on the Indian industries.

The study was carried out in sectors such as metals, gems, leather, garment, jewelry and handloom or power-loom. Earnings of the workers in all these sectors had increased by around seven percent, during this period. However, the workers in the leather sector experienced a fall of 1.4 percent in their income.
