The estimated total employment across nine sectors in manufacturing, construction, trade, transport, education, health, housing and restaurants, IT/BPO and financial services stood at 30.8 million against a total of 23.7 million during April-June, 2021. These areas were reported in the Sixth Economic Census. The census covers the period from January 2013 to April 2014.

Meanwhile, the survey also revealed that the decline in COVID-induced employment was evident in 27 per cent of the establishments during the first wave that hit the country from March 25 to June 30, 2020. The silver lining is that 81 percent of the establishments got their full wages during the lock down.

In the construction sector, 27 per cent had to accept reduced wages and seven per cent had none. More than 90 percent of workers in health and financial services received full wages.
