Dholakia 2000; Hirway 2000). Gujarat’s economic growth rate is relatively high and its per capita income is also very high as compared to the Indian average. 2 per cent, respectively, between 1993/94 and 2003/4 (provisional). 1 per cent (Government of Gujarat 2006a: s-43). However, sluggish growth of employment in the organized sector is obvious in the state as well. 49 per cent between 2000 and 2004 (Government of Gujarat 2006a: s-107). Furthermore, Gujarat is also no exception to the paradoxical growth of production and employment in the organized manufacturing sector.

A person is considered unemployed if, during the reference week, no economic activity was pursued, but he or she made efforts to get work or was available for work any time during that week though not actively seeking work in the belief that no work was available. Pakistan All persons 10 years of age and above are considered to be unemployed if, during the reference period, they were: (1) without work (were not in paid-employment or were self-employed and (2) were currently available for work (were available for paid employment or self-employment), or (3) were not currently available due to illness, willing to take a job within a month, temporary layoff, or an apprentice and not willing to work).

In addition, what is to be noted is an increasing share of female workers in the organized sector. 8 per cent in 1998 (Labour Bureau 2004: 17). Thus, employment in the organized sector has either stagnated or decreased, but the total workforce has been increasing at the same time. e. e. 5 per cent per annum between 1991 and 2001. 2 per cent in rural areas. In short, if one considers the employment situation in the organized sector, it will be obvious that the increase of the total workforce has been due to an expansion of employment in the unorganized sector.
