During Covid-19, unemployment in India zoomed to 21 percent from 7 percent earlier, it was announced on Wednesday.
The Covid-inducted lockdown caused migration of workers across the country, causing unemployment to shoot up. Now the situation is improving, S.L. Menaria, Additional Director General, Division Headquarters, NSO, said here.
It was found that instead of the organized sector, the most hit was the unorganized sector across the country.
