Total employment in nine areas rose to 3.10 crore during the July-September time of 2021, an expansion of 2 lakh contrasted with June quarter last year, as indicated by a quarterly employment study delivered by the Union labour ministry on Monday.

Trade and Transport sectors accounted for 5.3 per cent and 4.6 per cent of the total estimated workers, respectively. Yadav said these studies will aid the government to achieve its mission of last-mile delivery and evidence-based policy making for workers.

QES being a demand side survey, along with supply side survey i.e, Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) will bridge data gaps on employment in the country, he noted. Nearly 90 per cent of the establishments have been estimated to work with less than 100 workers, though 30 per cent of the IT/BPO establishments worked with at least 100 workers, including about 12 per cent engaging 500 workers or more.

However, in the Construction sector, 20 per cent of the workers were contractual and 6.4 per cent were casual workers. Most (98.3 per cent) of the establishments were located outside households.
