The role of labour market and sectoral policies in promoting more and better jobs in low middle income countries: Issues, evidence and policy options: The case of India

Jayati Ghosh

EMPLOYMENT Working Paper No. 206, 19 January 2017

This study highlights the lack of structural transformation and the slow growth in productive jobs. In the case of women, the labour market trends even pointed to decreasing workforce participation. The author examines the effectiveness of labour market and sectoral policies in addressing these problems, notably the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) public works programme and the “Make in India” sectoral policy.
