Unemployment in India
Unemployment in India
Unemployment is a situation when a person is not employed, that means person is not working. In present, unemployment in India is the biggest problem. Problem is that in India, there is craze of government job as it is referred as the safe job.
Private job is considered as not suitable, no job security, more work pressure and less pay. Whereas in government job, job security and also facilities like health, incentives are good.
Promotion is fixed and is time bound. But there is lack of opportunity for people as they have to crack exams for getting selected for this dream job.
Person having sufficient qualifications are not getting government job because there are not enough posts and also there are over qualified persons fighting for the same job.
I have heard of situation where MBA professional was competing for a peon job. For a single post, there are lakhs of candidates competing and competition has become tough now.
So, it has become difficult for an average person to compete and grab the job. This is leading to disappointment in young generation and increase in tension due to family and society pressure.
Unemployment in India is leading to several different consequences for our youth generation. They are getting stressed, depressed and it is causing them to go in wrong direction involving risk of their life. It is a major problem which India is facing.
Now there is gradual shift in the mindset of people and now people are going in private jobs also. IT industry has came up as a big industry and is giving employment to a large amount of people.
Although, there is no job security, not enough facilities, but people are getting good pay by switching different IT companies. Also in situations like recession or present COVID condition, this industry is facing layoffs which is creating problems for the people employed in this industry.
But then also, now a days, these private companies are organizing exams for recruiting employees. And if they are not taking exams, then they are only taking experienced employees.
This is again creating barrier for an average person because they are crossing half of age limit in preparing for government exams and after getting defeated, then are trying for private jobs.
But this limit is giving back fire to desire of getting job in private companies, as they have to fight with crores of freshers coming to this industry, also not getting enough attempts to crack the exams. Again, after being defeated in this painful journey, it is creating depression in youths.
In present condition, youths who are still alive after facing this many torture in life are finding new ways of employment like entrepreneurship, business etc.
In this new path, first challenge they are facing is the resistance of their own family because parents wants best and easy life for their children and they think this path will be difficult and will not give comfortable life to their child. If somehow, they are able to succeed their parents, then they have to face society resistance who is ready to prove you wrong in every single step.
Also, youth are getting discouraged because they are not sure of the time in which they will succeed, prove themselves. Some who succeed will become an inspiration and many who fail will vanish from the society fighting with their fate.
Also, there are various bad elements in society, which are taking students to a wrong path as they are unsecure and frighten about their future. They are brainwashing students which is leading to end of their lives.
Also there are elements which are cheating students by taking their money and assuring them to give them job. Students, in dream of job are giving money and are again getting disappointment in return. I appeal students to not go in these paths.
I am writing this blog because I have closely observed this feeling and want to create awareness in young generation that whatever path you choose like government job, private job or self employment, you are not alone.
In India, there are crores of youth who are unemployed and are finding ways to get money so that they can stay alive, bear responsibilities of their parents, family and can succeed as a child, parent.
So, don’t feel alone and fight with your fate as much as possible to change your situation of unemployment in India. As, sitting idle with disappointment or ending your life will not solve your problem. You have to be positive, struggle with situation to win and believe that we will surely win.
