ANSWER 

MINISTER OF STATE(IC) 
FOR LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT 
(SHRI SANTOSH KUMAR GANGWAR) 

(a) to (c): Though there is no segregated data in respect of outsourcing of employment in the country, the Labour Bureau’s revamped Quarterly Employment Survey (QES) launched in April, 2016 measures relative change in employment situation over successive quarters in sizeable segment of Non-farm Industrial economy. The survey covers 8 major sectors which constitute around 81 percent of the total employment of establishments employing 10 or more workers as per the 6th Economic census, conducted during January, 2013 to April, 2014. The Sixth QES has shown an increase of 64,000 jobs during the April-June quarter of 2017. This increasing trend is observed over and above the four preceding quarters. The details of Sector wise change in employment, including the change in IT/BPO Sector, is annexed. 

Government runs various employment generation schemes like Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP) implemented by Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises, Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGA), Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY) scheme run by Ministry of Rural Development, and Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana- National Urban Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NULM) implemented by Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs. 

Further, the schemes of PradhanMantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY) and Pradhan Mantri Rojgar ProtsahanYojana promote employment generation. Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY) provides collateral free loans by Banks, Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs) and Micro Finance Institutions (MFIs) to small/micro business enterprises in the non-agricultural sector to individuals to enable them to setup or expand their business activities. 

Pradhan Mantri Rojgar Protsahan Yojana has been initiated by the Ministry of Labour and Employment in the year 2016-17 for incentivizing employers for promoting employment generation. Under this scheme, Government is paying the entire employer’s contribution (12 % or as admissible) towards the EPS and EPF for all sectors w.e.f. 01.04.2018 to all eligible new employees and is applicable for all sectors for the next 3 years. 

In order to improve the employability of youth, around 22 Ministries/Departments run skill development schemes across various sectors. 

The Government is implementing the National Career Service (NCS) Project which comprises of a digital portal that provides a nation-wide online platform for jobseekers and employers for job matching in a dynamic, efficient and responsive manner and has a repository of career content.
