Meanwhile in India, the job sentiment still remains down owing to the ongoing economic slowdown. Concerns for jobs still loom large, Ipsos said recently and the job indicators at Thomson-Ipson did not witness a northward swing. The jobs index remained down by 1.1 percentage points, Ipsos said in a recent report. According to a latest CARE Ratings report as well, the employment in the country has lagged behind growth in GDP from FY15 to FY19. This suggests that the two have not moved in commensurate terms during the period, CARE Rating agency said. While headcount or employment rate was 2.5% in 2015-16, the same fell to 4.1%, 3.9% and 2.8% in the following years.
