Gandhinagar, 26 June 2020

Gujarat leads the country in providing employment with the lowest unemployment rate at 3.4 percent. These details are revealed in Jeter’s periodic labor force survey document. Organized by the National Statistics Office of the Ministry of Statistics and Program Implementation.

In the urban sector, Gujarat ranks first in the Indian government in the age group of 15 to 59, with the lowest unemployment rate in the country at 3.4 percent. Gujarat has broken its record for lowest unemployment this year. In the same survey, Gujarat led the country with the lowest unemployment rate at 4.5 percent last year. Such a claim has been made in the survey. But in fact, Gujarat does not have such a good picture. Former Chief Minister Shankarsinh Vaghela has alleged that 50 lakh graduates are unemployed.

3 million people have migrated from Gujarat. Details of the basis on which the government was surveyed have not been disclosed. There is a BJP government at the center and Modi’s Kahagari Rupani government in Gujarat. Which is benefiting from the branding of Gujarat.

More industries have come down this year due to state incentives for industries including MSME sector, simplified policies, quick credit support, labor reforms and ease of setting up industries.

Compared to Gujarat, Karnataka’s unemployment rate is 5.3 percent, Maharashtra’s 6.6 percent, Tamil Nadu’s 7.2 percent, Andhra Pradesh’s 7.8 percent, Haryana’s 9 percent, Kerala’s 11 percent and Telangana’s 11.50 percent.
