SRINAGAR: The government of Jammu and Kashmir has recruited nearly thirty thousand people after August 2019, the parliament was told on Tuesday.
The government put the recruitments in the public sector from 2019 onwards at 29,806. “In addition, employment for 5.2 lakh persons is estimated to have been created through self-employment schemes from August 2019 up to June 2022,” the government response noted.
Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy’s (CMIE) monthly frequency data suggests that the unemployment rate in Jammu and Kashmir in June 2022 declined to 17.2 per cent in comparison to May when it was 18.3 per cent. The June data puts Haryana at top of the highest unemployment figures, Rajasthan at the second number and Jammu and Kashmir at the third top across India.
