Abstract

India has witnessed an impressive GDP growth rate of over 6 per cent since the 1980s. Growth has been particularly rapid since the post reform period of the 1990s. This high growth has contributed to a sustained  increase in per capita income and a decline in absolute poverty, as well as modest improvement in standards of living. It has also brought important changes in employment conditions in the country. The structure of the labour market, patterns of employment growth and labourmarket institutions play an important role in shaping development patterns and outcomes. Today, India is counted among the most important emerging economies of the world but employment conditions in the country still remain poor (Labour and Employment Report 2014).
