Unemployment in India And Its Causes

Updated on December 4, 2013

Unemployment

Introduction:-

Unemployment is the most dangerous problem of India now a days. Several speakers at a seminar on 'The government's policies to downsize employees' on Sunday blamed the central and state governments for growing number of unemployed youth in the country. Speaking at the seminar organised by the Democractic Youth Federation of India (DYFI), noted educationist C Reddy said that it was the duty of the government to generate employment opportunities. The government should not bank much on the propotionality between the rise in the gross. As we all know India is an agricultural country and its economy depends upon agriculture in old time but now its economy depends upon other professions also. that's by we are facing unemployment problem.Professional filing systems which require teams of people to maintain are now on a single computer server controlled by a single person. Unemployment is a state of out of work. And it directly affect the political,economical,educational,social growth of our India.Unemployment and migration are the main problems afflicting Bihar and eight districts of the state, situated along the banks of Kosi, are the worst-affected, said junior Union minister for human rights Sanjay Paswan. He was speaking at a round table discussion on "Socio-economic challenges and development", organised by ADRI here on Sunday. Ishwari Prasad, in his speech on the occasion, said that globalisation and gram panchayat system could not go together.BJP Aldona candidate Glen Ticlo criticised MLA Dayanand Narvekar for neglecting the constituency despite being in the ruling party. Addressing supporters in Aldona, he appealed to people to vote for BJP. "Constructing only gymnasiums cannot be called development. Development should be people-centric with benefits to all," Ticlo said. "Give me a chance to solve issues of electricity shortage and unemployment. I also promise to bring all-round development," Ticlo said.

Causes of Unemployment in India

Facts Responsible for Unemployment:-

(1) Economic Condition:-

Economic conditions are the main factor in unemployment.India is a developing country and its GDP growth is under developing condition.Once a company fails to pay its employees then there is no choice for them they have to leave job . With no reason to continue paying them, they lose their jobs as the job simply disappears. Due to weak economic conditions company become unable to pay its employees.

Unemployment is a situation of not getting the work and wages with eligible conditions.People are getting education but not getting the jobs.

(2) New Technologies:-

As new technologies are increasing more and more people are facing unemployment problem. A single computer is doing the work of a team.This is the form of unemployment which happens during prosperous times when companies can afford to invest in new technologies. A single J.C.B. Machine is doing the work of a whole Labor in construction areas. So people have to face the unemployment problems.

In old time there were less machines only people have to do work. But after the discovery of new machines Labor is being replaced by the machines. So more people are getting out of work. Now company only wants an operator for its machine.

(3) Poor English:-

In modern time English has become most important for the job. In many causes a good student having good technical knowledge didn't get job because of his/her weak English.

We are only getting education.We are not taking interest in realization of the facts. That's by after education we didn't get job. Personality development is also mostly required. Now a days most of the company has become global,they can transfer its employ to anywhere in India or in other countries also and English is general language which speaks everywhere that's by it is must for getting the job. If a perfect individual will apply for that job he will get selection certainly.

(4) Corruption:-

Corruption is another most Looks like a few more people will soon be out of work for a bit. This happens due to the investigation of the team leader. If he find some mistake there then he make quit for that particular employ. Any time you are out of work for any length of time you can qualify for unemployment benefits regardless of what you are told.

Some people can’t get hired because they don’t have enough money and they are not qualified to do the work requirements. Most companies call a person’s references and if they don’t have a good work record they are not likely to get hired.

case of unemployment. An eligible candidate could not get job while an un eligible candidate get job by bribe. Hence government is also responsible for unemployment.

Lack of knowledge about the vacancy is also the great case of unemployment. And it is due to lack of motivation.Fired for being or becoming disabled and unable to perform your regular work?

(5) Population:-

Unemployment is the result of overpopulation because overpopulation is defined as a condition where a country’s human population exceeds the carrying capacity of its environment meaning in this case that the population is more than the amount of available or needed jobs. Unemployment is directly proportional to the population.

Population plays a very vital role for unemployment. Real facts shows that if there are only 100 vacancies then there are more than 1000 or 10000 applicant for that job.So what rest of the people will do. Where they will go after this. They have nothing to do?

Unemployment is directly proportional to the population.If we will try to control the population then I think this problem could be resolve effectively.

Effects of Unemployment And Corruption

Types & Effect of Unemployment:-

Types of Unemployment:-

1 Periodic Unemployment

In this case people become out of work for a certain time period every year. It is also called as seasonal unemployment. This type of unemployment can be seen in agricultural and other industries related to agriculture like sugar industries, as is has to stop its function after the crop of sugercane.

2 Sudden Unemployment:-

This type of unemployment happened sudddenly. This may be due to changed technology and due to depression. It happen in almost all the industries.,trades and businesses.

3 Unemployment caused by the failure of industries

Sometimes due to the failure of the industry people become employless. As industry is shutter down and people are asked to go.

4 Due to the deterioration in business and industry

Sometimes due to the low profit industry or business have to face deterioration. This also became a cause of unemployment.

Effect of Unemployment:-

(1) Crimes are increasing:-

Due to unemployment people have no work,they are free all time. But the needs of them are same, so they stats doing illegal thing which produce money for them. They starts crime which can be seen in the form of murder, smugling, rape, brieve etc.

(2) Competition is increasing:-

The police had to resort to lathicharge to control a mob of students at the employment exchange here on Monday afternoon. There was hardly any police official to manage the crowd and the situation went out of control. The youth resorted to ruckus. The situation went worse when group of youth entered into clash, abusing each other. The male students were annoyed that the clerks of the employment office were not depositing their registration forms.

In every field competition is increasing. It is the direct output of unemployment. Entrance exams are becoming more and more difficult.

(3) Lower wages:-

Because of more applicants organization offer less salary to its employees. And they accept this to get work either they have no option.

      500 years ago, nobody was unemployed in India since every Indian man, woman and child was fully employed from sunrise to sunset.

      The west not only should talk about free flow of capital and good but also labour migration should be free of restrictions.

      Every debt is not bad but debt which Indians take from western banks does no good to our country.

      Every time Indians pay interest, Indians are WORKING for the lender - in effect becoming their slave.

      Indians must work just to support that debt.Not only has the lender become the master in this regard, he/she is becomingwealthier at the same time.

      This is one important way that the rich become richer,and the poor become poorer.

      The "rich" are masters of their money, not servants to it, as it works and multiplies forthem.

      Indians lose their freedom at the moment Indians allow debt to make us the servant.Is their economy becoming a slave to World bank and foreign banks?

      With this much debt, the lenders have the power to affect the value of Indian currency/markets. They rule!

      Eventually, they choose Indian Prime Minister and Finance Minister, despite of any political group won the election.Manmohan Singh worked in World Bank before becoming Finance Minister and Prime Minister of India.

      Similarly Chidambaram, Pranab Mukherjee and Montek Singh Ahluwalia were former employees of World Bank & IMF.In 1991, when India needed loan, the World Bank agreed to give loan on condition.

      The condition was to install Finance Minister of its choice and that guy was Manmohan Singh.

      Sad but true.

      World Bank & IMF are just international branches of the private banking cartel that also owns the US Federal Reserve, the Act for which was secretly draftedby a handful of men, all heads of banking dynasties.

      Over population and illegal Bangladeshi Migration is the one of biggest cause for unemployment. There is Stubborn Religion which allows more than one wife and allows as many as babies production for making a big number of people of their religion !

      Thanks MsDora! India is really facing such kind problems, but the most interesting fact is that people want employment and Government is also taking action about it, But it is increasing day-by-day.

      Unemployment is not only inevitable in capitalist countries it is a requirement of the big employers because having a large unemployed workforce exerts a huge downwards pressure on wages.

      Unemployment is an inevitable consequence of capitalism- not that capitalists will ever admit it.
