This year, about 12 million more people are expected to work in the country, up from 9.3 million in 2015.
India has more than half the world’s youth unemployment, according the OECD.
But the government is struggling to find enough jobs for the growing number of young people.
In 2016, there were 4.2 million young people in India, down from 4.6 million in 2016.
Many young people do not have enough income to cover living expenses and have difficulty finding jobs in the informal sector, where they are less likely to earn enough money to pay their rent, utilities, and other bills.
The government has also struggled to tackle an unprecedented rise in the number of suicides among young people, which is now at its highest level since 2009.
The government’s efforts to improve the labour market, and its efforts to expand the number and scope of public-private partnerships and the labour force management system have been key factors behind the gains in youth employment and participation.
In December 2016, India’s central bank introduced new rules aimed at improving employment and living conditions for young people under 25.
The new rules will also help improve the quality of public services and provide a cushion for the government from losses due to labour shortages.
This is part of a series of measures to improve employment opportunities for young Indians, especially those who have not yet graduated from high school or the workforce.
The rules also seek to help youth with job training, vocational training, and job-specific training, as well as support their job search.
The NSSO has said that the increase in youth participation in the labour-market has not come at the expense of the government’s capacity to provide decent public services.
The latest NSSOs estimates show that about 18.4 million people aged 25-34 are employed in the private sector, down 4.7 million from the previous years.
In the private-sector, about 17.4 percent of the population is under the age of 25.
In the informal economy, there are about 6 million more workers, or around 7 percent of India’s workforce.
Around 3.1 million people under the employment age of 18 are employed, up 5 percent from the last years.
