Chhattisgarh ranks fourth among the states with the lowest unemployment rate in the country

Raipur:
Center for Monitoring Indian Economy Organization has recently released the
data of unemployment rates in the states of the country, which has once again
proven the effectiveness and credibility of the Chhattisgarh Model of
Development.

According
to the data released, Chhattisgarh ranks fourth among the states with the
lowest unemployment rate in the country. Unemployment rate in Chhattisgarh at
present is 2.1 percent. CMIE has released this data after studying the
situation in December 2021. According to CMIE data, Karnataka has the lowest
unemployment rate in the country i.e. 1.4 per cent, whereas Haryana has the
highest unemployment rate in the country i.e. 34.1 per cent, said a government
release today.

Under
the leadership of chief minister Bhupesh Baghel, a new model of development was
adopted to achieve the goal of inclusive development in Chhattisgarh three
years ago. This model of development was inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s vision of
Gram Swaraj. Under this model, economic connectivity between the villages and
cities was emphasized. For economic empowerment of the villages, various
innovative schemes and programmes including Suraji Gaon Yojana,
Narva-Garva-Ghurva-Bari programme, Godhan Nyay Yojana, Rajiv Gandhi Kisan Nyay
Yojana, Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Bhoomiheen Krishi Mazdoor Nyay Yojana,
establishment of Rural Industrial Parks, collection and value addition of
forest produce, entrepreneurial skill development are being implemented under
this new Chhattisgarh Model of development, said the release.  

As
a result, Chhattisgarh remained untouched by the nationwide economic recession
during the first and the second wave of Covid-19.  Even then the unemployment rate in
Chhattisgarh remained under control. Now, as per the newly released data, steep
rise in the unemployment rate of the country is a major cause of concern, while
the unemployment rate of Chhattisgarh has shrunk to 2.1%.  Gujarat holds the second rank in the country
with the unemployment rate of 1.6% and Odisha has the third lowest unemployment
rate in the country with 1.6%.

According
to the new data released by CMIE, the unemployment rate in various states is as
follows:- 3.4 percent in Madhya Pradesh (seventh lowest in the country), 4.9
percent in Uttar Pradesh, 5.8 percent in Assam (12th rank in terms of
unemployment), 27.1 per cent in Rajasthan 17.3 in Jharkhand and 16 percent in
Bihar. According to the report, the unemployment rate in the country was 6.52
percent, as on January 2021 last year, under which urban unemployment rate was
8.9 percent and rural unemployment rate was 5.81 percent. And as on December
2021, the unemployment rate in the country reached 7.7 percent, with the urban
unemployment of 9.1 percent and the rural unemployment rate of 7.1 percent.

The
Center for Monitoring Indian Economy Organization has been building the
database for 45 years by conducting continuous studies in the fields of Indian
economy, foreign exchange, agriculture, industry etc. and the data released by
this organization is considered to be authentic.
