In the present context of globalisation, countries are pursuing vigorously strategies to maximise economic growth. However, growth alone may not be sufficient to bring in any major improvement in economic and social well-being of the population, particularly those who are located at the lower echelons of the socio-economic ladder. The composition of growth, nature of growth (factor intensity) and the extent of positive spill-over effect of growth from one sector to another are some of the important determinants of pro-poor growth. On the other hand, the quality of labour available, scope for skill formation and employability of the labour force are equally crucial in bridging the gap between the demand and the supply forces.
