A year after the nationwide lockdown in March, India’s labour force in the non-farm sector was short of 11 million in February 2021 compared to 2019-20 and the fresh lockdown could worsen the situation, warns the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy.
“The recovery of jobs seems to have stopped 2% short of its earlier level while recovery of non-farm jobs seems to have stopped 4% short of its earlier level. It is important that a fresh lockdown does not make this worse,” CMIE said in it
