‘Absence of enough jobs means India is losing its demographic dividend’

The size of India's labour force has stayed roughly the same, at around 430 million, since 2016, indicating that India is not generating sufficient jobs for the number of people entering the labour market, thereby losing its demographic dividend, says Mahesh Vyas, managing director at the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy.
