The table below shows the estimated number of workers in India in the organized and unorganized sectors. Read the table carefully. Fill in the missing data and answer the questions that follow.


● What is the percentage of people in the unorganized sector in agriculture?

● Do you agree that agriculture is an unorganized sector activity? Why?

● If we look at the country as a whole, we find that…..of the workers in India are in the unorganized sector. Organized sector employment is available to only about…..of the workers in India.

Answer :

1. The percentage of people in unorganized sector in agriculture is zero because as the proportion of agriculture sector people out of a total number of people in the unorganized sector is not mentioned over there so it means that the percentage is considered zero. Also, we can consider that people were not engaged in agriculture at that time.

2. Yes, it can be said that agriculture in our country is an activity of the unorganized sector and the reasons are:

  • People engaged in agriculture are not paid properly and not even on a regular basis which is the first negative point.
  • In the agriculture sector, there is the issue of underemployment. More than required people are engaged in this sector.
  • Farmers are dependent on moneylenders and relatives for their loan requirements.

3. If we look at the country as a whole, we find that 93% of the workers in India are in the unorganized sector. Organized sector employment is available to only about 7% of the workers in India.
