  • In the intro, mention the increase in GVA in the construction sector in the fourth quarter of the financial year 2020-21.
  •  In the body, mention the limits such as GVA increase does not always translate into growth in employment, also growth in the sector does not translate into benefits of its workers, high growth sectors do not represent a significant part of employment in the country, also mention employment alone is not enough if the wages are decreasing. In the way forward mention steps such as direct cash transfer and food etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need to go beyond sectoral growth as means of delivering relief to workers.
