Govt says report on unemployment data still in drafting process
(New Delhi, Jan 31,2019):Amid the controversy generated by the ?leaked survey of the National Sample Survey Office?, the Government on Thursday clarified that the report on unemployment data is yet to be finalised and is still in the drafting process. ?The NSSO report on unemployment is still being drafted and is not approved by the Government,? Niti Aayog vice-chairman Rajiv Kumar told a press conference here. He said the Indian economy is growing at 7 per cent on average while it is growing at 11 to 12 per cent on current value terms.

?If economy is growing at this pace, it is also obvious that jobs are being created.? He said there cannot be comparison between this year NSSO report and the 2011-12 data. The reason behind this was methodology was different. The 2011-12 data was five-year records while this year they have collected figures on quarterly basis. ?We have collected four months data but rest two months data is still being verified. We may get the whole records in March next month. Once we receive the complete information, we will put it in public domain,? Mr Kumar said. Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said the government has created 70 lakh jobs per year.

They are creating enough jobs for new entrants though there is lack of good quality productive jobs. On NSSO two members'' resignation, Mr Kumar declined to comment and said they have resigned due to their own reasons. Earlier, a news report has said in 2017-18, the country''s unemployment rate stood at a 45-year high of 6.1 per cent, quoting the NSSO report. It said this report was one of the reasons why two expert members ? including the acting chairman ? of the National Statistical Commission resigned on Monday, as the government had not released the numbers despite the commission''s approval.

This data was collected by the NSSO between July 2017 and June 2018 ? and is the first official survey that at the country''s employment situation after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation of high-value currency notes in November 2016.
