Abstract

It is the popular belief that employment growth should have been at an equal pace with the growth of Manufacturing industry in India post major economic reforms in 1991, but number of studies show that it hasn’t been so. Though it’s seen that employment has indeed increased post 1991 reforms it hasn’t accelerated at the rate of manufacturing industry growth. adoption of automation methods and other technological advancements adopted by manufacturing companies have been a major reason for this phenomenon, and also the huge cost pressure on the firm due to stiff competition in the market which they operate In this paper we will investigate the employment growth in India during various periods of major economic changes and compare them in parallel with neighboring country China which has marked significant progress by adopting manufacturing as the major industry.
