Abstract
This paper dwells on the issue of labour in the organized manufacturing industries
in India in the post-reform period. The employment conditions of labour are explored
by linking them up to the growth of respective industries. Categorising industries as
high and low growth ones, the paper relates wage, employment pattern (permanent
as well as contractual), technology, wage-profit shares as well as labour productivity
to the changing structure of industries between the pre and post reform periods.
The analysis corroborates in a way the ‘‘jobless growth’’ syndrome in the Indian
manufacturing in the post-reform period. On the other hand, rise in capital labour
ratio in certain industries has helped displacing labour in the age of globalization.
Volatility in employment growth in the post-reform period has also been perceptible.
The empirical findings of the study show growing vulnerability of labour in Indian
manufacturing industries.
