Employment Trends in India

The findings of the Employment and Unemployment Survey 2011-12 (68th round) reveal that over nine million persons found employment between 2009-10 and 2011-12. This was characterised by some sections of the media as a "rebound" from the stagnancy between 2004-05 and 2009-10.
