The moment we start talking about rural India, most of the times we hear that rural areas are emptying out.
People want ‘fully developed and easy life styles’ and so are moving to cities far more rapidly than most of us realize.
Even though ample number of people are aware on this change, but still many civic and corporate leaders will agree to what the Indian express says:
Rural India is far more enterprising than urban areas, as it accounts for 61.3 per cent of the country’s industrial units compared to just 38.7 percent in towns and cities……
A quick look at the report:
Maharashtra has surpassed other states in terms of employment generation over last six years.
Tamil Nadu followed Maharashtra with 98 lakh employed. West
Bengal, Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh came in subsequent
Maharashtra is second in the enterprises.
Rural areas are on top of annual growth of jobs.
Quite interesting is that Jammu and Kashmir too registered a
growth of 6.82 per cent in total employment growth.
At all India level, average employment per enterprise is 2.35
and the figures for rural and urban areas are 1.94 and 2.99
