Construction sector jobs witnessing increase
Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley wrote a detailed blog on the economy, stating that there had been an increase in jobs.
“An analysis of the data released clearly shows that the construction sector is expanding by double digits. It is a job creating sector. Investment is increasing. Domestic investment is also increasing. The FDI is at an unprecedented level. The IBC is unlocking the value in the Non-Performing Assets. Fixed capital formation is growing. Manufacturing is expanding. We are spending huge amounts on infrastructure creation. Expenditure on rural projects has increased in a big way. The social sector schemes, more particularly the financial inclusion programmes, have created a wave of self-employment. Each one of these is a high job creating sector,” Jaitley wrote in his blog.
He also addressed the GDP data rise, impact of structural reforms, and revenue situation.
