Helping India's Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Create Jobs
1. Shilpa Motwani, Student, Ahmedabad University, India
In India, micro, small, and medium-sized businesses have played an increasingly vital role in the nation's efforts to provide urban and rural residents with employment opportunities during the last fifty years. In recent years, small, and intermediate businesses have contributed much more to the gross domestic product, resulting in the creation of many new employment possibilities. This study's results provide insight not only on the current state of job creation in India, but also on the future of job creation by MSMEs. The results of this study lead the researchers to conclude that micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), particularly those located in rural areas, contributed significantly to the growth of employment opportunities. In addition, the states of Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, and Madhya Pradesh, as well as Karnataka, have each contributed to the increase of work opportunities. In conclusion, the findings of this study shed light on crucial issues such as strengthening infrastructure in rural areas and increasing investment in previously neglected enterprises.
Due to the considerable contributions it has made to India's overall socioeconomic growth, the micro, small, and medium-sized company sector has become an integral element of the Indian economy. The proliferation of medium- and large-sized businesses in developing nations like India has transformed the landscape of employment opportunities in general. In reality, tiny and medium-sized firms confront a variety of obstacles, the most significant of which is a lack of access to technology and capital, especially in rural regions. This issue is particularly widespread in regions with low population density. In addition, colossal investments must be expanded concurrently with the adoption of a Free Commerce Agreement, which would promote international trade for small and large businesses and enable the economy to grow from the standpoint of socioeconomic and equitable development.
