Unemployment rate at 8.59% in week ended June 28: CMIE

Jun 30, 2020 11:58 IST

The unemployment rate in the country inched marginally higher to 8.59% in the week ended June 28, from 8.48% a week ago, though it remained close to pre-Covid levels. The urban unemployment rate continued to remain in double-digits at 10.69% and the rural unemployment rate was recorded at 7.62%, data from the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy showed. Experts believe Kharif sowing and higher MGNREGA activities are helping keep the rural unemployment rate lower, but the urban unemployment rate is expected to stay high due to supply chain disruptions.
