The trends in employment generations in the Indian economy have been sluggish and moving towards downward sloping. As a result the growing labour force has been striving a lot for survival in the job market. The slothful employment creation shifts the bargaining power from the worker to employer due to reduced demand for labour consequently wage level may reduces in the economy. It reduces the aggregate demand and income levels and generates more socio-economic tribulations. This certainly hinders the economic growth and development both in the long-run and short-run. In this background it is very important to examine the trends in the employment levels in the Indian economy. So the present study puts an effort to evaluate the trends in factory employment both in the public and private sectors.
