Kishor Jadhav*, Satyasheel Dhanle**
The paper explores employment trends and patterns differently based on the industry’s technological classifications. This research suggests that a high-technology-intensive industry increases employment growth rates. Similarly, low-technology-intensive and medium workers gap have widened after the trade liberalization. It is found that major industry groups have witnessed slightly increasing employment growth during the 1989-1990 to 1999-2000.Then declined during the period 2000-01 to 2005-06. This study examines shifts in employment generation potential of different sectors of manufacturing industry.
