53 million people unemployed in India as of Dec 2021: CMIE

  • According to the data released by the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE), nearly 53 million people are unemployed in India as of December 2021.

  • As per the data, out of the total number, 35 million people actively seeking work while 17 million are those who, though willing to work, are not actively seeking it.

  • “India needs to immediately provide employment to the 7.9% who are in the unemployment rate or 35 million in December 2021 who were not employed and they were actively looking for employment,” CMIE said.

  • “An equally important challenge is to provide employment to the additional 17 million who were also not employed and were willing to work if work was available although they were not actively looking for work,” it added.
