Question 23:

A study in Ahmedabad found that out of 15, 00,000 workers in the city, 11, 00,000 worked in the unorganised sector. The total income of the city in this year (1997-1998) was Rs 60,000 million, Out of this Rs 32.000 million was generated in the organised sector. Present this data as a table. What kind of ways should be thought of for generating more employment in the city?

Present this data as a table.

Organised Sector

Unorganised Sector


No. of workers




Income (RS)

32,000 million

28,000 million

60,000 million

It is clear that whale a larger portion of workers is working in the unorganized sector, the per capita earning of those in the organized sector is more. The government should encourage the entrepreneurs in the unorganized sector to change them into the organized sector. Moreover, government should introduce some incentives so that more industries could be opened up in the organized sector.
