Employment Alleviates Poverty

Posted by Allexamsinfo on July 14th, 2018

A job is the only mode which can help the poor to get rid of poverty; it is found that there is 40% fall in poverty for the last 10 years due to rise in wages, worldwide.  But, developing nations are facing acute problems because there is a persistent job crisis, which is hampering their growth.   It is roughly estimated that over two billion labour is unemployed and more than 65% labour is working in deplorable conditions. Even they do not earn sufficient wages to alleviate their poverty in developing nations.

India is also one of the developing nations. But, the growth rate of India is the highest, which is approximately 8% per annum.  You will be surprised to know that around 2.15 Crores population of India is engaged in the Government Sector, which is merely 2% of its total population.   The most vital fact is that our 18% youths are unemployed and they need immediate assistance, so that they can live a respectable life.

For many years, our Governments are trying hard to find ways and means to generate more employment opportunities for our posterity.  Open economy is also playing a pivotal role in reducing the rate of unemployment because many job aspirants are getting job opportunities in private sector.  Also, the Government of India has undertaken many initiatives to mitigate the effect of unemployment.    

The initiatives taken by the Government of India for augmenting Government jobs are given below:

  1. Integrated Rural Development Programme: The programme is developed in 1980 to alleviate poverty from the rural areas by identifying rural families and by giving subsidies to them for purchasing productive assets.
  2. Prime Minister Employment Generation Programme: This scheme is implemented by Khadi and Village Industries Commission, wherein the Government provide subsidies to assist artisans and unemployed youths for starting their own micro enterprises.
  3. Jawahar Rozgar Yojna (Sampurn Grameen Rozgar Yojna) : The Government has started the programme with an objective of providing 90-100 days employment to unemployed people in rural backward areas.  The aim of the programme is to provide employment through Panchyats and financial aid was provided by the District Rural Development Authority.
  4. Mahatama Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act: The act was enacted in the year 2005.  The objective of this act to provide social security through labour law and to guarantee employment upto 100 days for those who agrees to do unskilled work.

The education and skill development are some of the steps taken by the Government to help to rise in wages. 

Government job is also considered one of the best sectors in India, where the remuneration is good and constant till the age of retirement.  Many Government jobs are published for the young people because the young Government job aspirants are always looking forward for notification on the latest exam updates of Upcoming Government Jobs, Bank Exam Notifications and Upcoming Bank Recruitments, etc.  They work hard and put sincere efforts to crack the Upcoming Government Exams and the Best Online Test Series, which are pronounced from time to time.

There are many other initiatives are taken by the Government, which helped in alleviating the poverty from the rural as well as urban areas of the country.  I hope that we shall overcome poverty some day
