  • Structural Change and Development in India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ajit K. Ghose
      Pages: 7 - 29
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Human Development, Volume 15, Issue 1, Page 7-29, April 2021.
      Structural change—reallocation of labour from lower-productivity economic activities to higher-productivity ones—is not just an important contributor to growth but is also the principal route to improvement in employment conditions in developing economies. In history, remote and recent, structural change associated with successful development has involved labour reallocation from agriculture to manufacturing and services at early stages and from agriculture and manufacturing to services at later stages. Structural change in India, however, has been and continues to be very different; even at an early stage of development, labour reallocation has occurred from agriculture to services but not to manufacturing. While this kind of structural change has contributed to growth, its effect on employment has been very weak. The pace of improvement in employment conditions has been very slow. Economic growth, consequently, has not been accompanied by commensurate development. The challenge for the future is one of enhancing the role of manufacturing in the growth process.

  • What Prevents Adolescent Girls from Transitioning from School to Work in
           India' Insights from an Exploratory Study in Rajasthan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Shireen J. Jejeebhoy, A. K. Shiva Kumar
      Pages: 30 - 48
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Human Development, Volume 15, Issue 1, Page 30-48, April 2021.
      Female labour force participation among young women in India is disturbingly low, and yet little evidence is available regarding the factors likely to affect the school-to-work transition among the young. Data from 325 girls aged 15–19 years and in-depth interviews with 10 of these girls and 9 of their mothers in one block of Jodhpur district, obtained from a mixed-methods study in Rajasthan, explore girls’ aspirations for professional, administrative or technical careers and factors likely constraining or facilitating their articulation of such aspirations. Findings show that girls who aspired for a professional, administrative or technical career were more likely than others to display better learning outcomes (odds ratio = 1.31), greater work-related agency and a readiness to overcome community obstacles (odds ratio, 1.28) than those who did not aspire for a professional, administrative or technical career. They were also more likely to be unmarried or married but residing in the natal home (odds ratio = 2.97) and have supportive parents (odds ratio = 1.37). In-depth interviews corroborate these obstacles. Findings underscore the need to empower girls and break down traditional norms held by girls, parents and communities. On the programme front, it is important to ensure empowerment programmes for girls and address the quality and girl-friendliness of education and vocational training opportunities.

  • Poverty, Pandemic and Elections: Analysis of Bihar Assembly Elections 2020

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mudit Kapoor, Shamika Ravi
      Pages: 49 - 61
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Human Development, Volume 15, Issue 1, Page 49-61, April 2021.
      We analyse the Bihar assembly elections of 2020, and find that poverty was the key driving factor, over and above female voters as determinants. The results show that the poor were more likely to support the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). The relevance of this result for an election held in the midst of a pandemic is very crucial, given that the poor were the hardest hit. Second, in contrast to conventional commentary, the empirical results show that the All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen—‘AIMIM factor’ and the Lok Janshakti party—‘LJP factor’ hurt the NDA, while benefitting the Maha Gath Bandan (MGB), with their presence in these elections. The methodological novelty in this article has combined elections data with wealth data to study the effect of poverty on election outcomes.

  • Public Financing of Human Development in India: A Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sacchidananda Mukherjee, Shivani Badola
      Pages: 62 - 81
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Human Development, Volume 15, Issue 1, Page 62-81, April 2021.
      Role of public financing of human development (HD) is inevitable, especially for developing countries like India where access to resources and economic opportunities are not equitably distributed among people. Governments aim to achieve equity in distribution of resources through allocative and redistributive policies whereas macroeconomic stabilisation policies aim to achieve higher economic growth and stability in the price level. Expenditure policies of the governments envisage in delivering larger public goods and services to enable people to take part in economic activities by investing in human capital and infrastructure developments. Progressivity of the tax system helps in achieving equity by redistribution of resources among people. Being merit goods, expenditures on education, health, and poverty eradication make it a case for public investment which empowers people to improve human capital. The benefit of universal economic participation is expected to contribute in larger mobilisation of public resources over time. Lack of economic opportunities and earning a respectable income may increase dependence on public transfers which may reduce fiscal space of the governments to finance programmes to promote overall economic growth. The objective of this article is to review existing studies on public financing of HD in India and highlight emerging challenges.

  • Water and Sanitation: Achievement of Large Indian States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Manmohan Agarwal, Rimon Saha
      Pages: 82 - 99
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Human Development, Volume 15, Issue 1, Page 82-99, April 2021.
      In this paper we make a comparative analysis of water and sanitation facilities across Indian states. We also analyse the trend and pattern of state expenditure in the water and sanitation sector and relate the expenditure with the nature of the existing facilities. Furthermore, we assess whether the state governments are adequately financing the sector in accordance to their GDP. Using data from the state statistical reports during 2001–2012, we find that the sanitation facilities are alarmingly low, particularly in the states Assam, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh. There are high interstate disparities in drainage facilities and latrine usage, with no sign of convergence during the study period. However, in terms of the provision of sanitation facilities, Haryana has showed significant progress over the years, whereas the progress in Assam, Rajasthan and Maharashtra does not seem promising. Along with the poor facilities, state spending for the provision of such facilities is also limited. We find that the correlation between expenditure and the facilities is also not direct and strong. Lastly, we notice the extent of expenditure in accordance with their gross state domestic product is astonishingly low for most of the states except Haryana.

  • Basic Service Provisioning in Peri-urban India: A Regional Perspective
           from Kolkata Metropolis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Dinabandhu Mondal
      Pages: 97 - 116
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Human Development, Volume 15, Issue 1, Page 97-116, April 2021.
      In the globalising world, rapid urbanisation and expansion of cities trigger complex interactions with the surrounding rural areas and transform them into peri-urban areas. The peri-urban transitional spaces around cities experience rapid population growth and occupational diversification. However, they suffer from poor infrastructure and service provisions and the living condition has also been deteriorating over time with increasing population pressure. This article tries to explore accessibility to basic services in the transitional interfaces in comparison with the urban core and rural counterparts, taking Kolkata metropolis as a case. Using village level household information obtained from Census 2011, a composite amenity index by principal component analysis and one-way analysis of variance have been used to assess the status of services. The study finds that the condition of basic service provisions in peri-urban areas is unsatisfactory and far behind from the urban areas. It therefore resembles the hypothesis of “degenerated periphery” that the expansion of cities creates peripheries without basic civic amenities and infrastructural facilities necessary for its residents for maintaining the standard of living.

  • Of Vulnerability and Agency: Perspectives from Survivors of Sex
           Trafficking in India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nisha James, Shubha Ranganathan
      Pages: 117 - 127
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Human Development, Volume 15, Issue 1, Page 117-127, April 2021.
      The recent Anti-Trafficking Bill in India (2018) has received considerable criticism for perpetuating a paternalistic attitude towards victims of sex trafficking. Scholars, activists and legal experts have pointed out the failure of the Act to recognise the agency of trafficked girls and women. In thinking about victimhood and agency, we draw attention to the need for thinking of ‘vulnerability’ in terms of complex intersectional processes and situations that render certain persons more vulnerable to trafficking. This article delves into contexts and vulnerabilities in the process of trafficking by drawing on women’s narratives about the lived experiences of sex trafficking. It is based on a qualitative field study through in-depth interviews of 51 survivors of sex trafficking who were sheltered in government and non-government organisations in the cities of Chennai and Hyderabad.

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Human Development, Volume 15, Issue 1, Page 128-137, April 2021.
      This article examines the implementation of the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) in two districts of Tamil Nadu—Panchetti and Salem. It describes the functioning of the Act based on a preliminary field study and documents the views of implementers and beneficiaries. This analysis reiterates that the implementation should drive policy and that the evaluation lessons need to filter back to the design of the policy. More specifically, MGNREGA requirements can be improved on two counts: one, wage determination and wage rates; and two, evolving better techniques to measure labour productivity.

  • Quality of Drinking Water and Sanitation in India

      Pages: 138 - 152
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Human Development, Volume 15, Issue 1, Page 138-152, April 2021.
      Wide disparity exists in access to drinking water across social groups in rural and urban India. This article shows that the economically weaker sections or the lower quintile class does not have access to water within the premises both in rural and urban areas. This indicates that low income or wealth would mean poor access to basic amenities for households. Similarly, access to toilets and incidence of open defaecation reflect social disparities. The regression results show that an increase in the household income increases the predicted probability of maintaining an exclusive latrine. Further, compared to the ‘General Category’, the ‘Scheduled Castes’ and ‘Other Backward Classes’ have a lower probability of constructing an exclusive latrine facility, in the rural and urban areas.

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Human Development, Volume 15, Issue 1, Page 151-164, April 2021.
      This article explores the role of non-profit organisations in mitigating crisis for the urban working poor during the pandemic in India. We focus specifically on the humanitarian crisis around the interstate migrant workers that resulted from the Indian government’s efforts to contain the pandemic by imposing a nationwide lockdown. Through in-depth interviews with leaders of non-profit organisations in India, who were actively engaged in relief work during the migrant crisis, we explore the role of poverty and inequality in exacerbating the pandemic’s impact. Our findings indicate that multiple dimensions of inequality combined to aggravate the effects of the lockdown on interstate migrant labourers in India. The government’s initial apathy towards this vulnerable group, delay in addressing the unanticipated consequences of the pandemic response, and its ineffective crisis management efforts resulted in a humanitarian crisis in the country concurrent to the pandemic. In this context, the non-profit sector played a critical supporting role in mitigating the migrant workers’ crisis during the pandemic.
