Nov 01, 2019 23:01 IST

An academic paper — written by Santosh Mehrotra and Jajati K Parida and published by the Centre of Sustainable Employment at the Azim Premji University has concluded that the total employment in India declined by 9 million between 2011-12 and 2017-18. According to Mehrotra and Parida, this is the first time such a decline has been recorded in independent India's history. The paper adds close to 2.6 million jobs were lost every year between 2011-12 and 2017-18. The govt has not yet reacted to these findings.
