More than 90% of the workforce in India works as informal labour. That's a staggering figure. Despite its overwhelming contribution to the economy (50%) and employment, it is generally seen as parasitic with no contribution to tax income of the government and also because it is unregulated. These include the construction workers you see toiling on that new building coming up. It includes that street vendor making gulab jamuns and samosas in the evenings, and the auto-rickshaw driver who takes you home from work. While none of them pay tax to the government, they serve a need for customers like you and me. They also earn an income despite their low skills and education. We need these jobs, to keep our demographic dividend/timebomb employed and out of trouble. Informal has always been the normal in India and will remain so for decades to come.
