Manish Sabharwal, Chairperson and Co-founder of Teamlease argues that in order to compete in a global economy, India needs greater productivity and formal employment. Renana Jhabvala, best known for her long association with SEWA (Self-Employed Women's Association) where she organised women into trade unions, argues the opposite. India’s informal economy is large and here to stay, and our labour laws must accommodate informal workers.

Highlights –

  • The size and shape of the informal labour economy in India, including its role in India’s economic growth
  • The trade offs between a focus on greater productivity and on supporting small and informal enterprises
  • How the policy environment excludes informal workers
  • The need for a stronger social security net for informal workers
