B'lore among top Tier I cities for job generation

Bangalore, along with Mumbai, Pune and Chennai are top five Tier I centres that have generated maximum jobs with a share ranging between 8-14 per cent in the total job generation across India, according to a study by apex industry body Assocham. 

According to Assocham’s sector specific analysis — ‘Job Trends Across Cities & Sectors,’ IT & ITeS, education, banking, financial services and insurance and automobiles are top five sectors generating maximum jobs across India. 

The study tracked the data on a daily basis for vacancies posted by about 3,500 companies via job portals like timesjobs.com, naukari.com and advertisements in the national/regional dailies and the news journals for 56 cities and 32 sectors offering job opportunities.

In Tier III category, Dehradun has topped the charts with over 650 jobs generated thereby registering a growth of over 54 per cent  in job generation between the fourth quarter of financial year 2011 and first quarter of financial year 2012.

Gwalior, Ludhiana, Bhubaneshwar and Raipur are other leading Tier III centres that have generated maximum jobs at the tier TII centres.

Apart from Dehradun, Gwalior and Ludhiana both Bhubaneshwar and Raipur have seen a dip ranging between 23-37 per cent in the job generation growth rate during the last quarters.

Likewise, in Tier II category, Lucknow has topped the list with 1,698 jobs thereby registering a surge of over 54 per cent in job generation between the fourth quarter of financial year 2011 and first quarter of fiscal year 2012. But the city’s share in the total job generation across India is a paltry 1.3 per cent, according to Assocham.

However, according to the study, there has been a dip of over 20 per cent in the total job generation between first quarter of the current financial year and the fourth quarter of the previous financial year across India reflecting a clear slowdown in employment.

Besides, there has also been a dip ranging between14-33 per cent across eight metros — Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi-NCR, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.
