The elephant in the room: Creating jobs and skills of the future

March 2022

In our latest economic report, we aim to explore trends in the Indian labour market and highlight the challenges the country is facing.

Lack of employment opportunities has been India’s Achilles’ heel for decades. The pandemic has worsened the labour market recovery and made it highly fragmented. Our study suggests how the pandemic has left several unemployed people discouraged; these people are now overly pessimistic about job conditions. Additionally, job discrepancies across regions, gender, and generations are on the rise.

India must deal with this mammoth challenge and create broad-based jobs (for youth, and across skills and sectors). It must prepare its workforce for the future.
