Commit to Publishing Employment Data for the Past 6 years

I’m confused. As a parent in the world’s fastest growing economy, I don’t know what to tell my children when they come to me for career advice. My children are bright and intelligent, and are among the 15 million youngsters who enter the workforce every year.

But there is no data on the sunrise sectors that are ready to employ them in the next 2 years in India. I did a Google search in desperation and found that the NSSO, India’s prime employment data collection body has not released its annual survey report on job generation since 2011-12.

Sign my petition asking all political parties to commit to releasing sector-wise employment data for the past 6 years, if and when voted to power in 2019.

This data will enable the youth to make informed career choices and find gainful employment. The economy will benefit as well. It will be a win-win for all!

Recently, I read in The Times Of India, "an independent think-tank called the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy estimated that 11 million jobs in the country were lost in 2018, with the rural sector being the worst hit. Furthermore, the same article reported that our Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said that the government has helped create "crores of employment opportunities" across sectors in the past four-and-a-half years.

If the government releases accurate data on employment, it will put an end to this confusion thereby incentivising my family and lakhs of others to invest in education and encourage them to be a part of the meaningful workforce in India.

Sign my petition so that data on visible employment opportunities becomes accessible to every Indian in 2019.
