This book critically examines the emerging trends in employment and unemployment in the Indian Economy during the post-reform era. Using the latest round of NSS data, the author studies the impact of these structural economic reforms on: -- Employment generation, with reference to different and competing sectors--rural / urban; agricultural / non-agricultural; organised / unorganised. -- Unemployment and underemployment, in terms of the apprehension that economic reforms lead to loss of employment. --Casualisation of employment-- that is, a belief that reforms lead to increase in the proportion of casual labour. -- Information of employment --Feminisation of employment. Unique in the fact that there is no comparable work on the topic, this book provides an excellent organisation of the material and a lucid presentation of the discussion and will be of enormous interest to economists, social scientists, policy makers, scholars and students.
