Skilled and Unskilled Unemployed Persons

               

                State-wise estimates of unemployment rate including skilled and unskilled persons on usual status basis obtained through latest round of quinquennial labour force survey conducted by National Sample Survey Office during 2009-10 are at Annex.

 

                There is no such proposal to provide weekly unemployment allowance to unemployed persons till they get the job under consideration of the Government of India.

The payment of unemployment allowance to all unemployed youth would divert substantial resources from development programmes to a non-developmental activity. These resources should better be used for developmental activities which would generate substantial productive employment.

     

     The Union Labour & Employment Minister Shri Mallikarjun Kharge gave this information in a written reply  in  Rajya  Sabha today.
