Delhi-NCR, the largest job generating centre
As per a study undertaken by The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) to find out about the job trends in India, Delhi-NCR has come out as the fastest job generating centres among the major metropolitan cities in our country. The employment growth rate here was around 34.27% during April-August of the current financial year. Delhi was followed by Mumbai (12.70 per cent), Chennai (6.12 per cent) and Kolkata (4.19 per cent) at second, third and fourth positions respectively.
All levels of jobs are being created i.e. from the senior most position to the junior positions. One can find employment as management trainee or job of the highest level executive in a company. Aspirants find Delhi-NCR to be an important employment destination. The Secretary General, ASSOCHAM said that the campus trends too are positive here as compared to the previous year.
Agriculture and allied activities, Textile and Real Estate sector respectively are providing greatest job opportunities. At the fourth and the fifth positions are Infrastructure and Aviation sectors.
Mumbai and Chennai are ranked second and third as far as total vacancies offered are concerned. Kolkata is next in the line.
The total vacancies posted are the largest in Academics sector in the metro cities. In the education sector 59.46% of the total openings were publicized. IT sector has the credit of creating highest number of jobs in the four metro cities. It could be mainly because of the rise in wage inflation and low demand in the European countries. 57.07% of the total job openings were in IT and IT-enabled services. Next was the IT/Hardware sector.
A rise in demand of the engineering goods and other activities related to the projects running going on in NCR in view of Common Wealth Games might have been the reason behind this buoyancy in the engineering sector. The engineering segment has a large chunk of share of around 54.29 percent in the total employment opportunities generated. Exports and imports have also shown the trends of recovery leading to increase in the share of manufacturing sector. But marginal growth was recorded in Telecom, FMCG, Banking and Logistics sectors.
