Contribution to Overall Employment by the Auto industry: Jobs and Skills

The present proposal is intended to study the contribution of the automobile sector to the overall quantity and quality of Indian employment in the auto industry. This study is being sponsored by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers. The specific objectives of the project are to estimate contribution of both direct employment in the manufacturing sector and indirect in the supporting sectors. The impact of the auto industry on jobs would be disaggregated across four segments – passenger vehicles, two-wheelers, three-wheelers and commercial vehicles. Last but not the least we will analyse the distribution of workers across various levels of academic, technical and vocational skills, across hierarchical levels and across qualities of jobs in the form of written job contracts. Rapid automation in this sector has further affected it and will have an impact on demand for type of skills.
