Abstract

Using the district data on industrial production for the organised manufacturing sector (OMS) in Tamil Nadu the paper identifies areas which have experienced jobless growth. Examining the inter-district variations in the performance of OMS units in the state, the paper identifies districts which have fared better both in terms of labour productivity and employment gains, distinguishing in the process the districts which have lagged behind in this regard. The findings of the study support the hypothesis of job displacement expected to prevail in an atmosphere of competitive economic environment. Some data problems requiring policy attention have been identified which, if addressed, contribute to a more effective generation of data at the district level.
