Resolution on the Massive Crisis of Unemployment


On the Massive Crisis of Unemployment

(Adopted by the 23rd Congress on April 8, 2022)

The extent of unemployment in India has risen sharply, both in absolute numbers and as a share of the labour force, in these four years since the 22nd Party Congress.

The official data on unemployment are a gross underestimation. The distress is especially severe in view of the absence of any meaningful social security provisions for the overwhelming majority of the population.
