India is expected to witness nearly 7% surge in job creation in the second quarter but the hiring of freshers may have slowed down. The good news is, there may be a rise in new vacancies in the rest of the financial year ending March 2020, according to the latest TeamLease Employment Outlook Report. The biggest recruiters will be educational services and e-commerce.

As the Indian government incorporates reforms in export policy and corporate tax to put an end to the rising unemployment rate in the country, healthcare & pharmaceuticals, IT and ecommerce and, tech startups intend to hire in the next six months, particularly from tier-II cities.

According to the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE), the unemployment rate in India fell to 7.48% in November. “8 out of the 19 sectors are expected to witness a double digit rise in job creation. Logistics and educational services alone will add 14.36% more jobs during the period October-March, 2019-20 indicting the dip in the net employment outlook to be more of a passing phase,” said Rituparna Chakraborty, Co-Founder & Executive Vice President, TeamLease Services.

During the first half of the year — April to September 2019 — logistics, educational services and Fast Moving Consumer Goods & Durables led the hiring sentiment. Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and Mumbai created the most number of jobs in the same period.
