Employment and wages in Indian manufacturing: Post-reform performance

EMPLOYMENT Working Paper No. 185

This work is a contribution to the Employment Policy Department’s focus on employment and growth in G20 developing economies. Much discussion on employment and growth in developing economies analyses what happens to the manufacturing sector. Using primary data from India, the authors show that unless we make a distinction between the organised and unorganised parts of the manufacturing sector, we are unlikely to form an adequate economy-wide picture of what is happening to employment in the lead developmental sector.
