Govt widens scope of jobs survey- I

  1. Gone the old: Govt has discontinued the quarterly employment survey, more than seven years after it started the exercise
  2. It was aimed at gauging the impact of a global recession on manufacturing and export-oriented industries
  3. Why? The quick employment survey has outlived its purpose
  4. Now we need to have a broad-based focus keeping in mind the new realities of Indian economy
  5. While manufacturing sector is important, ignoring the service sector will not give a complete picture of the employment generation in the country quarter-on-quarter
