COMMUNAL RIOTS-Farce of Punishing the Guilty

per cent in 1983 to 1987-88. This happened per cent in 1983 to 1987-88. This happened despite the acceleration in the growth of the economy to 5,6 per cent and in industrial growth to about 8.5 percent in the latter half of the 1980s. While agriculture and the organised sector experienced the sharpest deceleration of growth of employment, the rural non-farm sector, particularly rural manufacturing, and the unorganised sector in the urban areas showed over 4 per cent annual employment growth. A rough exercise based on alternative assumptions regarding (a) growth of employment in the organised and unorganised sectors and in the rural and urban areas, (b) employment elasticity of sectoral GDP growth, and (c) actual sectoral growth of GDP, yields figures of employment growth in the first three years of the Eighth Plan (1992-93 to 1994-95) of not more than 15 million, compared to the target of 24 to 27 million.
